Thanksgiving dinner disputes lead to stabbing, gunfire in SF

Thanksgiving Day dinner-table disputes turned ugly for at least two families in San Francisco this year, police said Monday.

One person was arrested and one person was hospitalized after a stabbing that occurred around 8 p.m. in the 400 block of Serrano Drive in the Parkmerced neighborhood, police said.

The suspect, a 28-year-old man, allegedly grabbed a knife from the kitchen after a family dispute that began at the dinner table and stabbed a 25-year-old man, according to police.

The suspect fled the scene on foot but was later located and arrested. The victim was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive his injuries.

In a second incident around 9:30 p.m. Thursday in the Portola neighborhood, two women were having dinner with a 30-year-old man at a home in the 700 block of Burrows Street when he “displayed his firearm,” police said.

When the women decided to leave, the suspect pointed the handgun at one of them and fired rounds into the air, police said.

The suspect fled, but was later taken into custody. The women were not injured.

Police have not released the names of the suspects in either incident.
