Intoxicated fight in Japantown apartment ends in stabbing

A 25-year-old woman was stabbed when she challenged another woman to a fight in a Japantown apartment Wednesday, police said.

The pair of intoxicated women were in an apartment on the first block of Lottie Bennett Lane, off Geary Boulevard and Laguna Street, when an argument broke out between them around 3:30 a.m., police said.

When one woman was looking for a fight, the other responded by grabbing a knife from the kitchen and trying to stab her several times. At some point, the 24-year-old assailant managed to stab the victim in the wrist.

The wounded woman was taken to the hospital. The other woman has not been arrested.
