Two men seriously wounded in separate SF stabbings

A 21-year-old man suffered life-threatening injuries when he was stabbed multiple times in San Francisco’s Outer Mission neighborhood late Tuesday night, police said.

The stabbing was reported just after 11 p.m. in the 900 block of Geneva Avenue.

The victim was walking home when five suspects came up from behind him and stabbed him in the side and back, according to police.

The victim was taken to a hospital and an update on his condition was not immediately available this morning.

The suspects, described as five males in their late teens or early 20s, fled on foot and have not been found.

Meanwhile, a 42-year-old man was stabbed with an ice pick near the Powell Street BART Station early Wednesday morning, police said.

The man, who was uncooperative with police, suffered life-threatening injuries and was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Anyone with information about either stabbing is encouraged to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or to send a tip by text message to TIP411 with “SFPD” in the message.
