Weekend crime roundup: Daytime robberies and Swiss Army knife attack

Two terrifying daytime Mid-Market robberies and a Swiss Army knife attack account for some of the weekend madness in San Francisco.

Geary Street and Mason Street
1:30 a.m. Monday

A man got angry that another man was aggressively demanding money from him, so he pulled out a knife and stabbed him once in the arm and the head. The wounds were superficial.

Fillmore and Union streets
12:30 a.m. Sunday

A 22-year-old man was stabbed twice in the back during a brawl involving nine people. A Swiss Army knife was used and the wounds were shallow, thus not life threatening.

Lobos Street and Plymouth Avenue
1:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. Friday

A 21-year-old man said he placed his messenger bag on the ground next to bed and fell asleep. When he awoke, he said his bedroom window was wide open and the messenger bag stolen. The bag included his tablet, passport and California driver’s license.

Fifth and Market streets
3:40 p.m. Friday

A 20-year-old man standing at the corner was punched in the face and robbed of his smartphone. The suspect, a man in his early 20s, fled and has not been found.

Market and Jones streets
4:15 p.m. Friday

A 34-year-old man was grabbed from behind and shaken by a 55-year-old thug. The suspect then robbed the victim, fleeing with a wallet, cash and smartphone.
