Two men were stabbed in separate incidents in The City on Wednesday, police said.

About 5:20 p.m., a 53-year-old man was stabbed in the torso in South of Market by a man who appeared to be in his 50s, police said.

The victim was in the 400 block of Stevenson Street when the suspect reportedly came out of nowhere and started a fight with the victim before stabbing him, police said. The suspect fled.

The victim was hospitalized but is expected to survive.
