Five stabbed in The City over weekend

Five people were stabbed over the weekend in San Francisco, but none were fatally injured, according to police.

The first incident happened 6:45 p.m. near the intersection of 2nd and Market streets Friday morning. The 33-year-old victim was asleep on the sidewalk around 6:45 a.m. when he woke to two men holding him down as a third stabbed him in the chest.

The victim was taken San Francisco General Hospital for treatment to his chest and cuts on his hands.

Just after midnight on Saturday morning, two men in their 20s were wounded during a brawl near 16th and Mission streets.

Police believe the fight, which involved an unknown number of people, was gang related. The first victim, 22, was stabbed in the chest and abdomen. The second victim, also 22, received wounds to his arm and abdomen. Neither received life-threatening wounds.

At 8 a.m. Saturday morning a 63-year-old man was walking near 7th and Market streets when a man approached him, punched him in the face and cut him in his back. After the assailant fled, the victim was treated at SFGH for lacerations to his lip and back.

At 11:10 p.m. the same day, a 53-year-old man was stabbed in the chest after getting into a fight at 16th and Mission streets. After the assailant fled, the victim was treated for his wound.

At 1:05 a.m. Sunday morning an 18-year-old man was attacked as he slept on the sidewalk near the intersection of Kearny and Commercial streets. He awoke to a man standing over him who started kicking him and then slashed him with a knife.

No arrests have been made in any of the incidents.
