Stabbings injure 3 men on Market, Capp streets

Two young men stabbed on Market Street near the Westfield Shopping Center were among the victims in a pair of stabbings that have been reported in San Francisco since last Friday, according to police.

Police said the suspect approached the men, aged 21 and 23, on Market Street between Fifth and Fourth streets at around 9 p.m. Saturday night, stabbing them with an “unknown sharp object.”

The suspect then fled the scene and has not been been arrested. He is described as a man between 35 and 40 years old.

Both victims were taken to the hospital and are expected to survive.

On Friday morning, a 26-year-old man was also stabbed in the Mission District.

Police said the suspect used a knife to stab the man on Capp Street between 16th and 17th streets around 10 a.m., sending the victim to the hospital with injuries not considered life threatening.

Police arrested the suspect, a 46-year-old man, but have not released his identity.
