Two people were stabbed in separate incidents in San Francisco on Tuesday, police said.

The first stabbing was in the Western Addition. In that incident, a 50-year-old woman was reportedly involved in an argument with a man of unknown age at Pierce and Post streets about 8:43 p.m., police said.

The argument escalated when the suspect pulled out a steak knife and stabbed the woman several times in the buttocks, thigh and face. The suspect then fled the scene in an unknown direction and has not been found, police said.

The woman's injuries were not life threatening, police said.

The second stabbing happened in the Mid-Market area about an hour later, police said. There, a 20-year-old man was trying to sell a gold chain in the 1000 block of Market Street. He offered it to a man in his 30s who decided to keep it without paying for it, police said.

The victim struggled to retrieve the chain from the suspect when he was stabbed in the arm with an unknown sharp weapon, police said. The suspect fled the scene with the chain.

The victim's injuries were not severe.

The suspect in that stabbing was reportedly wearing a black beanie, a white t-shirt with a black jacket and black pants, police said. No arrest has been made.
