Bevy of brawls brew blades

Brawls spawned several blade attacks over the weekend, cops said.

Six people were injured in knife or box cutter attacks since Friday in San Francisco, though none of the injuries were life threatening.

On Friday, a 26-year-old white man attacked two women in their 20s after a spat — slashing one woman several times and the other once — in the 1100 block of Fulton Street around 9:30 p.m., police said.

The women were not seriously hurt, cops said, but the punk fled and remains on the loose.

Less than four hours later, another spat — this time between two men — turned bloody after a stabbing in the 900 block of Taraval Street, police said.

The victim did not realize he was stabbed in the lower back until he got home, police said.

It wasn’t only men whipping out blades during the weekend. On Sunday, a 32-year-old woman stabbed a 59-year-old man after an argument in the 700 block of Ellis Street around 1:30 a.m., cops said.

The man was transported to the hospital to treat his non-life-threatening injuries. No arrest was made.

About four hours later, a fistfight between two Asian males, one 27 and the other 46, disintegrated into a stabbing in the 800 block of Ellsworth Street, cops said.

One of the men went to a neighbor’s house to call 911, then returned to the scene and allegedly stabbed the other man in the arm, police said.

The victim of the stabbing was treated at the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. Both suspects were arrested, cops said.

Finally, early Monday morning around 12:30 a.m., a 55-year-old Hispanic man having a spat with a 42-year-old man allegedly pulled out a box cutter and stabbed him in the calf, police said. The attack happened in the 3200 block of 24th Street, police said.

The attacker was arrested, police said.
