Hayward man stabbed to death during Haight Street fight

A 21-year-old man was stabbed to death during a fight early Saturday with an unknown man in the Haight, police said.

The man, later identified by the medical examiner as Hayward-resident Jose Garcia Sanchez, was with two other men at Haight and Stanyan streets around 2 a.m. when an argument broke out between them and another man, police said.

At some point, the argument turned into a fight and two of the men were stabbed by the suspect. The stabbing victims, including Sanchez, were taken to San Francisco General Hospital where Sanchez died.

The other victim was treated and released. He’s expected to survive.

The suspect is described as a man between 23 and 25 years old, police said. No detailed description was released.
