A 46-year-old man who was stabbed during a robbery on a freeway overpass near the City College of San Francisco was hospitalized Saturday with life-threatening injuries.

The man was walking on Ocean Avenue — above Interstate 280 — toward Howth Street around 5:32 a.m. when a younger man stabbed him in the abdomen and took his cash and two cellphones, Officer Albie Esparza said.

The robber then fled on foot toward San Jose Avenue, Esparza said.

The wounded man was taken to San Francisco General Hospital and is alive as of Monday afternoon, Esparza said.

No arrests have been made. The suspect is described as a man between 25 and 30 years old wearing dark clothing.
