Two people were stabbed early Thursday morning in separate incidents, leaving both victims hospitalized.

In the first incident, a 48-year-old man was stabbed at Evans and Mendell streets in the Bayview District at approximately 12:30 a.m., police said.

The victim was asking for cigarettes when two men walked up to him and demanded his belongings. When the victim refused, the men fought him and ran away.

Later, the victim noticed that he was bleeding from the chest and brought himself to the hospital.

The second stabbing happened minutes later, at around 12:40 a.m. at Mason and Geary streets in the Tenderloin.

The victim, a 36-year-old man, and another man got into a fight. The victim was stabbed multiple times in the side and back before grabbing a handgun and chasing the assailant down the street, according to police.

Alarmed by sirens, the victim hid the gun back in his car before the police arrived. The ma was taken to a hospital, and the handgun was later recovered during a search of the victim’s vehicle.

The suspect in the second stabbing was arrested, police said.
