Crazed man stabs victim in the buttocks

He was just trying to find his way home from a bar. Unfortunately he was on Sixth Street. At 2 a.m.

A 21-year-old man stumbling home after a night of imbibing was just three blocks from his home when he was stabbed by an unknown suspect at Sixth and Natoma streets, according to San Francisco police.

“He said that a guy was just walking on the street past him and began acting crazy and started swinging a knife at him,” police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said. It took a few moments before the victim realized he had been slashed in the buttocks and chest, he said.

The victim was able to run home and call police, Esparza said.

The man, who was treated at the hospital for his wounds, described the suspect as a Hispanic male between 25 and 30 years old, wearing blue jeans and a white shirt, with black hair, slicked back, according to police.

No arrests have been made.
