Weekend Crime: Skeletal remains found; four injured in three stabbings

Human skeletal remains were discovered under a Lower Pacific Heights building on Friday and police say they are investigating the matter as a suspicious death.

The remains were discovered when a dry cleaning business in the 1900 block of Fillmore Street called in contractors to do plumbing work, according to police.

The contractors were digging underneath the building when they discovered a human skull and bones.

Police were called in shortly before 4 p.m. and homicide investigators are treating the case as a suspicious death.

Anyone with information is asked to call homicide investigator Sgt. Kyra Delaney at (415) 553-1146, or the department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444. Tips can also be texted to TIP411 with “SFPD” at the start of the message.


Four men were stabbed in three separate incidents in San Francisco over the weekend, police said Monday.

The first incident occurred shortly after 1 a.m. Sunday at O’Farrell and Larkin streets. A 22-year-old man was walking when he was approached by three suspects.

The victim said he felt a push, then noticed his shirt was bloody. He sustained a puncture wound to his lower back and is expected to survive.

The suspects, three men in their 20s, all fled on foot.

Early Monday morning, a 36-year-old man was walking on Golden Gate Street near Jones Street when two suspects jumped out of the shadows and stabbed the man in his upper body, police said.

That victim was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive.

Later Monday morning, at about 3 a.m., two 28-year-old men got into a fight with two other men in the 4000 block of Mission Street.

The suspects, a 29-year-old man and 19-year-old man, cut one victim on the forehead with a knife and the other on the fingers with the side of a throwing star, police said.

The man who suffered a cut to his eyebrow was taken to a hospital, while the other victim refused medical treatment.

Those two suspects were arrested, police said.
