SFPD arrests 26-year-old man in connection with fatal stabbing

San Francisco police have arrested a 26-year-old man on suspicion of fatally stabbing another man last week.

Othman Al-Muttalaby, a San Francisco resident, was arrested Tuesday at about 3:30 p.m. at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital while he was being treated for an injury, according to police.

Al-Muttalaby is suspected in the fatal stabbing of 48-year-old San Francisco resident Keith Harris.

Officers responded at about 3 p.m. on Nov. 2 to the 300 block of Hayes Street, where Harris was found on the floor of an apartment suffering from multiple stab wounds, police said.

Harris was taken to a hospital, where he died.

After homicide investigators determined the suspect’s identity, sheriff’s deputies working at the hospital located Al-Muttalaby and notified San Francisco police.

Al-Muttalaby was booked in absentia on suspicion of homicide.

Investigators are asking anyone with information on this case to contact the San Francisco Police Department Tip Line at 415-575-4444 or Text-a-Tip to TIP411 and begin the text message with SFPD. Tipsters may remain anonymous.

Editor’s note: San Francisco police initially said the stabbing occurred on Oct. 31, but have since corrected that date to Nov. 2.
