Twin Peaks stabbing victims expected to recover

A 14-year-old girl stabbed in a bakery near Twin Peaks is expected to recover fully from her injuries, police said Sunday.

The teenager was stabbed Saturday at approximately 4 p.m. at Creighton’s Bakery at 674 Portola Drive. The suspect, 26-year-old Scott Thomas, was arrested and booked into San Francisco County Jail and is awaiting arraignment, according to San Francisco Police Department spokesman Sgt. Steve Mannina.

A man who came to the girl’s aid during the attack was also stabbed. He is recovering and should be released from the hospital “shortly,” Mannina said. The officer could not describe the nature of either victims’ injuries, but said Thomas did not know either of them.

Thomas is being charged with two counts of attempted murder, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon and one count each of burglary and child endangerment.

“Burglary includes any incident in which a suspect enters a premises with the intent to commit any felony,” Mannina said, though he would not speculate on Thomas’ reason for being in the bakery. Thomas is on parole for a prior violation in Southern California, but police do not know what that violation was or whether it was a violation of that parole for Thomas to be carrying the hunting knife he allegedly used in the attack.
