Man attacked with butcher knife in SoMa

A 35-year-old woman is suspected of attacking an older man with a butcher knife in South of Market early Tuesday morning, police said.

The man was cut on his forearm and fingers while defending himself from the knife-wielding woman on the 300 block of Clementina Street — near Fourth Street — around 2:15 a.m., police said.

The attack was the result of an argument that broke out between the 68-year-old man and younger woman, police said.

The woman fled afterward but returned when police arrived and was arrested by officers, police said. Her name has not been released.

The man was taken to the hospital.
