Man, woman stabbed in the back in separate incidents in SF

A man and woman are expected to survive after being stabbed in the back within a half hour of each other in separate incidents Monday in San Francisco, police said.

The first stabbing happened around 7:30 p.m. in the 100 block of Leavenworth Street, according to police. In that case, a 32-year-old man and a woman in her 20s began fighting, and the woman kicked the man in the testicles.

The man then pushed the woman, who subsequently stabbed the man in the back two times with a knife, police said.

The victim was taken to a hospital and the woman had not been arrested as of Tuesday morning.

About a half hour later, a woman was stabbed in the back by another woman who left the knife in the victim’s back before riding away from the scene on a bicycle, according to police.

That incident happened just after 8 p.m. at Eighth and Market streets, police said.

The victim had been riding a bus when the suspect, a 29-year-old woman, approached the victim and punched her in the head. The suspect the stabbed the victim in the back, leaving the knife impaled in the woman’s back, police said.

The suspect rode away on a bicycle but was soon taken into custody in the 300 block of Eighth Street, according to police.
