Woman cuts in line, then slices victim with razor blade in Bayview

An ungrateful woman allegedly attacked two food drive volunteers with a razor blade in the Bayview after being accused of cutting in front of the food line Sunday, San Francisco police said.

One of the volunteers was sliced in the arm during the charity spat at Third Street and McKinnon Avenue around 12:30 p.m.

Police responded to a call about the fight and saw three people brawling in the street. After interviewing witnesses, the cops learned that two of the people involved were volunteers for a charity drive who had been getting ready to hand out food for the needy, police said.

While the volunteers were stacking food on tables, a line was forming. But one woman who did not care to wait cut ahead of the line and began swiping food from the table.

One victim told her to put the food down, but the suspect refused, police said.

Then a second victim tried to shoo the suspect away from the food tables. That enraged the suspect, who began pushing the two volunteers, police said.

When one of the victims pushed back in self-defense, the suspect whipped out a razor blade and began swinging it at both victims, cutting one in the arm, police said.

At that point cops showed up, separated the parties and interviewed witnesses.

The suspect was arrested and booked for aggravated assault with a weapon at Bayview Station, police said.

The victim was transported to San Francisco General Hospital, where she was treated for the slash to her arm, police said.
