Woman stabbed in chest, man’s neck slashed in separate SF incidents

A woman and a man were stabbed in San Francisco in two separate incidents since Monday, police said.

The 24-year-old woman was found early Tuesday morning sitting on the ground in South of Market with a puncture wound to her chest, police said.

Police believe she was stabbed with a kitchen knife by an unknown man at Sixth and Minna streets around 12:40 a.m.

The woman was taken to a local hospital and is expected to survive.

On Monday afternoon, a man was slashed across the neck with a knife in the Bayview, police said.

The 33-year-old man was in an argument with the suspected slasher on Ingalls Street and Egbert Avenue around 12:15 p.m. when the attack happened, police said.

The suspect, a 44-year-old man whose name has not been released, was arrested in connection with the stabbing about a block away at the intersection of Fitzgerald Avenue and Jennings Street.
