Intoxicated man attacked, stabbed in Mission alley

An intoxicated man was beaten and stabbed in a Mission district alley on Sunday afternoon by a group of men he met at a bar who invited him to smoke marijuana, police said.

The 51-year-old man walked from the bar into an alley on 26th Street at either San Jose Avenue or Valencia Street when the men he met began to attack him and one stabbed him with a knife, police said.

The man doesn’t remember how he ended up at a nearby hospital, police said. He’s expected to survive.

The suspects are four or five men in between the ages of 18 and 25, police said.

The stabbing followed an unrelated incident several days prior where a 36-year-old man was stabbed in the stomach area in the same district, police said. Police released details on the stabbing Monday.

The man was arguing with another man at an apartment on Mission Street near 19th Street last Thursday night when the suspect pulled out a knife and stabbed him in the abdomen before fleeing to another apartment, police said.

The suspected stabber, 36, was arrested but his name has not been released.

The wounded man was taken to a hospital with a stab wound not considered life threatening.
