Two stabbed in SF since Monday

Two men were stabbed in separate incidents across San Francisco since Monday, police said.

A 40-year-old man ran away from another man who stabbed him in the Tenderloin early Tuesday morning, but fell and was assaulted again, police said.

The man was talking to his friend near the intersection of Ellis and Hyde streets around 3:25 a.m. when the stabber came up behind them, police said. The victim swung his arm but was stabbed by the man.

The wounded man tried to run away but was chased, police said. The victim then fell and the suspect jumped on top of him, trying to stab him again.

At some point, police arrived and the victim was taken to a local hospital with a lacerated arm. He is expected to survive.

No detailed description of the suspect has been released.

The day prior, a 40-year-old man was stabbed in the arm during an argument south of the Duboce Triangle, police said.

The suspect, described as a man between 25 and 35 years old, “became enraged” and stabbed the victim on 16th and Pond streets around 11:32 a.m., police said. He then fled the scene on foot.

The victim was taken to an area hospital in non-life threatening condition.
