Weekend Crime: Restaurant assault; ride-hail driver strikes passenger with bat; shootings

Police are investigating two separate shootings in which people walked into San Francisco General Hospital early Saturday morning with gunshot wounds.

At 12:37 a.m., a 17-year-old boy arrived at the hospital, located at 1001 Potrero Ave., suffering from gunshot wounds to the forearm and shin, according to police.

The boy’s injuries were not considered life-threatening. He was uncooperative and officers are continuing to investigate the incident, police said.

A short while later, around 1:20 a.m., a 24-year-old man walked into the hospital suffering from a gunshot wound to his arm, according to police.

His injuries were also not considered life-threatening, police said. Police think the man may have been shot in Oakland but did not immediately release any other details about the case.

A 39-year-old woman suffered stab wounds to the stomach and thigh Saturday night in the Mission district.

The woman was walking in the area of 23rd and Capp streets around 10:40 p.m. when another woman approached her and asked to use her cell phone, police said.

The victim said no, and the two woman began fighting. That’s when a man in his 20s appeared and stabbed the victim, knocking her to the ground, police said.

The suspect fled the scene and has not been arrested.

The woman was taken to an area hospital and is expected to survive.

The 34-year-old victim lost consciousness when he fell to the ground after being punched. He was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive.

The suspect, described as a man in his late 20s, was not arrested.

A ride-hail driver allegedly struck a passenger in the head with a baseball bat late Saturday night in the Marina district after the passenger kicked the driver’s Toyota Prius, police said.

The incident was reported around 10:40 p.m. at Richardson Avenue and Francisco Street.

The passenger and driver apparently got into an argument over which route the driver should take when the driver told the passenger to exit the car, and the passenger subsequently kicked the vehicle, police said.

The driver then retrieved a baseball bat and struck the passenger, a 35-year-old man, over the head, according to police.
