A woman pierced her neighbor in the throat with a barbecue prong in one of two separate stabbings in San Francisco on Tuesday night, police said.
The victim, a 47-year-old woman, heard a knock on her door at the apartment complex in the unit block of Sixth Street around 11 p.m., cops said. When she answered the door, her 45-year-old neighbor sunk the prong once into her throat, they said.
The injury did not appear to be life threatening, police Officer Albie Esparza said. The suspect is in custody, he added.
Investigators have yet to reveal a motive for the stabbing.
It was one of two stabbings in The City on Tuesday.
A 26-year-old man was knifed in the Fisherman’s Wharf area around 8 p.m. following an argument with two suspects, police said.
The thugs, described as black men in their 20s, began punching the victim in the 500 block of Francisco Street, police said. The victim did not know he’d been stabbed until after the suspects had fled, they said.
People in a nearby restaurant called for help, and the victim was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
