Three injured in separate stabbings on same day in Tenderloin

Three people suffered stab wounds in separate Tenderloin incidents, but all are expected to survive, according to police.

The first incident happened in the Tenderloin at 2:37 a.m. Saturday near the intersection of O’Farrell and Mason streets.

The 27-year-old victim got in an argument with the assailant for no reason, police said. The suspect then stabbed the 27-year-old with a knife and tried to flee. Police arrested the suspect, a 25-year-old man, and the victim was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

The second stabbing, which involved five men chasing a lone victim, happened an hour later that same morning in the Tenderloin at 3:37 a.m., police said.

The 42-year-old victim, a man, was walking near Geary and Larkin streets when the five suspects, all men, began to chase him. They caught up with him and stabbed him, then fled.

He was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment and is expected to survive.

No one has been arrested in the case.

The third stabbing incident happened later that morning in the Tenderloin, police said.

The 49-year-old female victim was at the intersection of Powell and Ellis streets at around 8:30 p.m. with a 65-year-old male acquaintance when the pair got into an argument over money at an ATM. Then the man stabbed her with a bottle and fled.

Police arrested the man, and the woman was taken for treatment to a hospital.
