Police have released the identity of a man suspected of stabbing a cable car operator this afternoon in San Francisco’s Chinatown neighborhood. George Huong, 32, has been arrested on suspicion of attempting to murder a man operating a cable car near Mason and Jackson streets at about 4:18 p.m., police spokesman Lt. Troy Dangerfield said. Police found Huong in his home after responding officers followed a witness of the stabbing to the street where he lived, Dangerfield said. On the street was a trail of the victim’s blood leading to Huong’s home on Himmelmann Place in Chinatown. Three family members of Huong, two women and a man, were arrested for interfering with the police investigation. Dangerfield said they would be cited and released so long as they had proper identification. The victim, a man whose details were not released, is being treated at a local hospital for a life-threatening stab wound to the torso. His condition was unknown as of 6:30 p.m. There is no reason to believe the stabbing was gang related,
