Woman attacked at bus stop

A 41-year-old woman was slashed with a knife as she was waiting for a bus at Market and Seventh streets on Tuesday, less than a week after a man was stabbed on a 14-Mission Muni bus after coming to the aid of an elderly woman.

As the woman was waiting at the bus stop Tuesday at 6:30 p.m., San Francisco police spokesman Sgt. Steve Mannina said, a man approached the woman. An argument ensued and the man brought out a knife and sliced the woman on the body. He then immediately fled.

The woman was transported to St. Francis Memorial Hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, Mannina said. The case is under investigation and the suspect remains at large.

Last Thursday, a man was stabbed on a Muni bus after he stepped into an argument between an elderly woman and a white man described by police officials as 25 to 30 years old with short, dark hair wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans. The man suffered non life-threatening injuries, police said.
