Police: Four stabbed in SF since last week

A man slashed with a knife in the Mission district Sunday night was one of several stabbing victims in San Francisco since last week, police said.

The 54-year-old man was cut on his bicep on the 3000 block of 16th Street, near Mission Street, around 10:40 p.m. when he intervened in a confrontation between two women and a man who was following them.

The 40-year-old suspect followed the women when they left a bar, police said. When the suspect confronted the women, the victim intervened and was stabbed.

He was taken to a local hospital for treatment. The knife-wielding man got away.

Another man was stabbed multiple times earlier Sunday a couple blocks away from the Duboce Triangle, police said.

The 52-year-old man was arguing with the suspected stabber on Laguna and Waller streets around 3:10 p.m. when the two men started to follow and fight with each other, police said.

That’s when the suspect, a 42-year-old man who the victim knows, stabbed him several times on his torso, police said.

The victim was taken to a local hospital and the suspect was arrested. The suspect’s name has yet to be released by police.

Early Sunday morning in a separate incident, a 24-year-old man was stabbed in the chest on Seventh and Market streets, police said.

A 50-year-old man came up to the victim around 3 a.m. and stabbed him once with a knife before fleeing on foot.

The victim was not cooperative with police, refusing to provide further details, and was taken to a local hospital. He’s expected to survive.

Police have not arrested the suspect.

Last Wednesday, a 38-year-old man was taken to the hospital with a stab wound considered life-threatening when someone found him on a South of Market street, police said.

He’d been stabbed with a knife near Seventh and Howard streets around 2:17 p.m., police said. The victim was in and out of consciousness and couldn’t tell police what happened or who stabbed him.

On Monday, police did not say if the man’s condition had improved.
