Man propositioned then stabbed in SoMa

A 59-year-old man was stabbed with a knife in South of Market early Thursday morning.

The man was walking near 11th and Folsom streets around 3:45 a.m. when two men approached him and asked if “he was in service,” police said. When he didn’t understand what they meant, the two men began to beat him and then stabbed him several times.

He was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with stab wounds to his back and shoulder. His injuries are not considered life threatening.

No detailed descriptions of the attackers were released. The man was not robbed during the struggle.
