Two men stabbed in separate incidents in SF early Thursday

Two men were injured in separate stabbings in the Mission and South of Market early Thursday, police said.

A 29-year-old man was stabbed when he went outside his apartment to quiet down a man making noise on Clarion Alley near Mission Street around 2:40 a.m., police said. The man’s efforts to calm the suspect turned into a fight, which he came away from with a laceration on his back.

The wounded man made his way to Mission Station and was taken to an area hospital in stable condition.

The suspect is described as a man in his early to mid 30s, police said.

About half an hour later, a 46-year-old man was stabbed by one of two men who asked him for a ride on Ninth and Mission streets, police said. A fight followed the request and the victim was punctured on his side.

The victim got back into his car, drove away and crashed into a pole on Larkin and Market streets some time later, police said.

He is expected to survive.

No arrests have been made in the stabbing case.
