A 52-year-old man suffered lacerations to the head in a stabbing near the entrance of the Powell Street BART Station early Monday morning, police said.

Eventually, the suspect pulled out a switchblade and stabbed the victim in the head numerous times, police said.

The victim staggered away while the suspect, described as a man in his late 30s, fled in an unknown direction.

The victim was taken to an area hospital and is expected to survive.
