Boyfriend stabs woman in butt near Chinatown gate

A woman was stabbed in the butt and attacked Wednesday on the same block as the Dragon’s Gate entrance to Chinatown, police said.

The assault appears to have been retaliation for an argument the victim was in with another woman.

Police said the second woman’s boyfriend went to the victim at Bush Street near Grant Avenue just before 6 p.m. The boyfriend confronted her, punched her in the face several times and then stabbed her.

The woman, 46, was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with stab wounds to her buttocks and abrasions to her face, police said. She’s expected to survive.

The unidentified attacker, also believed to be 46 years old, rode away on a black bicycle before police arrived. No arrests have been made.
