Three arrested in connection with separate knife attacks across SF

Three women were arrested in connection with two separate knife attacks in San Francisco over the weekend, police said.

Bayview

A 54-year-old intoxicated woman was pepper sprayed and cut on the head with a knife in Bayview early Saturday, police said.

The victim was arguing with two other women on Rosie Lee Lane near Ingalls Street when they attacked her around 4:40 a.m., police said. Both female suspects, 40 and 57 years old, were arrested.

The wounded woman was taken to a local hospital with a head laceration requiring stitches, police said.

The suspects’ names have not been released by police.

Tenderloin

Except for a 28-year-old woman who’d been stabbed in the back, 15 people scattered from a Tenderloin street corner late Sunday when a police unit pulled up.

The woman yelled to officers and pointed toward a 31-year-old woman who had stabbed her at Turk and Leavenworth streets around 11:45 p.m., police said. The suspect, whose identity has not been released, was arrested.

The wounded woman was taken a local hospital and is expected to survive.
