Five stabbed in SF since Saturday

Two men stabbed during an early morning brawl at the foot of Nob Hill were only the latest victims in a series of stabbings reported across San Francisco since Saturday, police said.

Six men and one woman are wanted in connection with the stabbing at the intersection of Sutter and Taylor streets on Monday, police said. One victim was stuck with an unknown weapon in the chest and abdomen, but police did not say where the other man was stabbed.

Both men were taken to the hospital around 1:47 a.m. and are expected to survive, police said. The group of suspects fled the scene.

On Sunday, a 32-year-old man was stabbed outside of a club or lounge near Union Square, police said.

A pair of young women walked up to him on the 100 block of Ellis Street, pepper sprayed his eyes and then slashed the back of his neck with a knife, police said. Police responded at 1:46 a.m. and the man was brought to a local hospital with injuries not considered life threatening.

Several blocks away on the day prior, a 32-year-old man walked up to officers near Ellis and Jones streets in the Tenderloin and told them he was stabbed in the elbow, police said.

The man told police he was on his way to the hospital around 11 p.m. and then went there with his slashed elbow, police said.

Earlier Saturday, a 39-year-old man was stabbed during a cellphone robbery in the Mission, police said.

The man was stabbed in the hand with a small knife when he resisted a pair of robbers who tried to pull his cellphone away from him around 1:50 p.m. near 21st and Mission streets, police said.

The man was able to hold onto his phone and the thieves fled in an unknown direction.

No detailed suspect descriptions were released by police in any of the stabbings.
