A 35-year-old man remained in critical condition Tuesday after being stabbed on Golden Gate Park’s Hippie Hill on Monday evening, police said.
The suspects, described as four to six males, were sitting on Hippie Hill shortly before 6:30 p.m. when the victim walked by holding a beer, according to police.
The suspects chased the victim and began punching and kicking him, before one of the suspects stabbed the man in the stomach multiple times.
They then ran away and left the victim on the ground.
The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital in critical condition. No arrests had been made as of Tuesday morning.
Golden Gate Park has been the scene of two recent high-profile homicides.
The body of Stephen Williams, a 66-year-old homeless man, was found face-down in the park’s Alvord Lake on May 24.
Two men, 20-year-old Stephen Billingsley and 37-year-old Nikki Williams, both thought to be transients with no longstanding ties to The City, were arrested in connection with Williams’ death. Police have said they tortured and beat Williams over a three-day period before his death.
On Oct. 2, 2015, Audrey Carey, 23, was fatally shot at the western end of Golden Gate Park.
Three people, Sean Angold, a 24-year-old San Francisco resident, Lila Scott Alligood, an 18-year-old San Rafael resident and Morrison Lampley, a 23-year-old San Francisco resident, were arrested in connection with Carey’s death and another homicide in Marin County.
Angold has since pleaded guilty and agreed to testify against Alligood and Lampley, who is alleged to have been the shooter.
