Two brawls break out in Mission district over the weekend

Several young men were wounded in a pair of separate brawls in the Mission district over the weekend, police said.

The first scuffle erupted around 1:10 a.m. Saturday at 24th Street and Treat Avenue, when four to five young men stabbed a 22-year-old man in the buttock and punched him in the head, police said.

He was taken to a local hospital and is expected to survive. The suspects were not arrested and were described as between 20 and 25 years old.

Then in a nighttime skirmish Saturday, a group of young men swung knives and bottles at 19th and Guerrero streets, police said.

Three victims were taken to a local hospital around 8:45 p.m., with injuries including puncture wounds to the back and head, police said. The victims, three teenaged men and an unknown person, were arguing with six unidentified male suspects when they were attacked with the weapons.

The suspects fled on foot after striking the victims. They were described as between 16 and 25 years old.

No arrests have been made. The victims are expected to survive and were not robbed during the scuffle.
