The San Francisco medical examiner identified the victim of a fatal stabbing Monday night as 49-year-old San Francisco resident Eric Buschman.

Buschman was unloading his pickup truck in front of his home, near Excelsior Avenue and Athens Street, when a man came up to him and stabbed him, according to police.

The suspect is described as a “chubby” Hispanic man between 20 and 25 years old, standing 5 feet 4 inches and weighing 150 pounds. He was wearing a black, hooded sweatshirt and dark pants.

The man was last seen running from the area northbound on Athens Street and then west on Excelsior Avenue, police said.

Officers responded about 7:40 p.m. and located Buschman. Police are still searching for a motive, according to spokesman
Sgt. Wilfred Williams.

The killing marks the 39th homicide in The City this year. Buschman’s family, reached at his home, declined to comment.
