Police: Five stabbed in SF since Friday

A 22-year-old man who was dropped off at a hospital in San Francisco early Monday morning with several puncture wounds was one of five people stabbed in The City since Friday.

A sedan pulled up to a local hospital around 1:30 a.m., dropping off the 22-year-old victim who had multiple punctures and lacerations to his back, police said.

The man also had a punctured lung. He was taken to a different hospital for surgery and is expected to survive.

Two men in their 20s are suspected by police in connection with the stabbing. No further details have been released. Police did not say where the stabbing happened.

On Sunday, two men stabbed each other inside a Bayview residence. The pair were in a home on the Oakdale Avenue between Mendell and Lane streets just after 3 p.m. when one man stabbed the other, prompting the victim to stab his assailant in self-defense, police said.

Police said an arrest was made and one of the men was taken to the hospital. Both have non-life threatening injuries.

On Saturday morning, a 27-year-old man was stabbed in the abdomen while waiting for a friend in the Western Addition, police said.

The man was on Post Street near Steiner Street around 8:20 a.m. when an unknown man asked him for a cigarette and money, police said. The victim was then stabbed with a knife as he reached for his wallet.

The suspected stabber, described as man in his 30s, fled the scene before police arrived.

The wounded man was taken to a local hospital with a stab wound that is not life threatening.

In another incident, a group of five men attacked and stabbed a 23-year-old man in the chest on Friday afternoon near the intersection of 18th and Mission streets, police said.

The suspects fled in a silver minivan after the stabbing around 3:36 p.m., police said.
The victim was taken to a hospital in non-life threatening condition.

None of the five men have been arrested, police said Monday.
