Three people injured in two separate SF stabbings

Three people were injured in two separate stabbings in San Francisco early Wednesday, police said.

The first stabbing injured two people in North Beach about 2:55 a.m. The suspect was reportedly involved in a physical altercation with a 24-year-old man in the 500 block of Francisco Street and eventually stabbed the victim.

A 21-year-old man who tried to break up the fight was also stabbed by the suspect, police said.

Both victim's injuries were not life-threatening.

No description of the suspect was available.

The second incident occurred about an hour later across town in West Portal, police said. A 47-year-old man was sitting on a Muni bus near the intersection of West Portal Avenue and Vicente Street about 3:50 a.m. when a man who appeared to be in his 40s told the victim to watch his feet, police said.

The victim got off the bus and a passerby told him that he was bleeding, police said. The victim had apparently been stabbed in the thigh.

The suspect fled.

No arrests have been made in either case.
