Man stabbed on Muni platform in Bayview

A 49-year-old man walked into the Bayview Police Station with multiple stab wounds Tuesday evening after someone attacked him on a nearby Muni platform, police said.

The man was getting off a T-Third Street train at Williams Avenue and Third Street around 5:30 p.m. when he exchanged words with another person on the platform, Officer Albie Esparza said. At some point, the attacker pulled out a knife and stabbed him in the forearm and armpit.

The wounded man managed to make it five blocks down Williams Avenue to the police station, where he told officers what happened but did not offer a description of the suspect.

He was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with several stab wounds that are not considered life-threatening.
