A man was stabbed for an unknown reason by a miscreant in the Mission early this morning, police said.
The 48-year-old victim was walking up the stairs toward Franklin Square at 16th and Bryant streets when a man who appeared to be in his 20s stabbed him and fled the scene northbound on Bryant Street, police said.
The victim was taken to the hospital for his injuries, which were not life threatening.
It was the third stabbing this week in that area.
On Monday, a 31-year-old man was stabbed by one of two men in the area of 17th and Bryant streets about 5:25 p.m. The two suspects fled the scene in a gold-colored car driven by a third man. The victim’s injuries were not serious.
Early Tuesday morning, a 23-year-old man was stabbed in the back about 1 a.m. by one of eight men, who all fled the scene on foot after the stabbing. His injuries were also not serious.
The motives for these knife attacks remain unknown.
