An elderly woman sliced a man’s neck with a razor blade at the same Tenderloin intersection early Tuesday where a woman’s earring was ripped out later that day, police said.
The 69-year-old woman was in an argument with the man at Ellis and Jones streets around 7:43 a.m. when she picked up the blade and assaulted him with it, police said.
The wounded man, 57, was taken to Saint Francis Memorial Hospital for treatment. He is expected to survive.
Then around 3:30 p.m. at the same intersection, a 33-year-old woman’s earring was yanked through her ear during a fight with an older woman.
The woman with the split earlobe was taken to Saint Francis Memorial Hospital.
The suspect, a 50-year-old woman, fled before police arrived.
No arrests were made in either of the assaults.
