10 victims, including 3 teens, injured in series of stabbings in SF

A spate of stabbings in San Francisco has injured 10 people since Friday, including three teenagers stabbed during a fight in Silver Terrace and four people injured in a large brawl in the Bayview, according to police.

The San Francisco Police Department recorded five separate stabbings in The City between Friday and Tuesday, when police released information on crimes committed over the long holiday weekend.

In spite of the unusual number of stabbings reported, the most recent crime statistics available show that violent crime is not on the rise in San Francisco.

As of the end of September, the total number of violent crimes reported in The City had decreased slightly from 4,850 last year to 4,838 this year.

In the most recent stabbing, police said a 25-year-old man was stabbed and robbed of his wallet at around 1:10 a.m. Tuesday morning near 19th and Mission streets.

The man was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive. The suspect, identified only as a 25-year-old man, fled the scene in a vehicle and has not been arrested.

On Sunday morning, medics found a 37-year-old man suffering from a stab wound in the hallway of a building in the Tenderloin. Police responded to the building on Larkin Street between Bush and Sutter Streets at around 6:40 a.m.

The man was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive. Police have not identified a suspect in the stabbing.

Early Saturday morning, a 45-year-old man stabbed three women and a man during a fight in the Bayview. Police said the fight broke out at around 1:06 a.m. near Third Street and La Salle Avenue.

The 25-year-old man and women, ages 54, 24 and 23, are expected to survive. Police have not arrested the suspect.

On Friday night, a 24-year-old man was stabbed during a fight with another man who he tried to buy tobacco from in the Ingleside neighborhood.

The man was stabbed on Monticello Street near Garfield Street at around 7:43 p.m., according to police.

Both the suspect and the victim were taken to the hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening. The suspect, a 20-year-old man, was arrested. Police have not released his name.

On Friday afternoon, a 16-year-old boy was arrested for allegedly stabbing three teenagers during a fight on Silver Avenue near Ledyard Street, about a block away from the Silver Terrace Playground.

Police responded to the stabbing at around 3:37 p.m. The three injured boys were taken to the hospital but are expected to survive.

Police do not release the identity of juvenile suspects.
