San Francisco police are searching for suspects in several stabbings that took place earlier today. The first stabbing occurred at Mission and Cesar Chavez streets around 12:45 a.m., when two men got into an argument that turned into a fight, according to Officer Albie Esparza.
The suspect, described only as a Hispanic male around 45 years old, slashed the victim in the abdomen and fled the scene, Esparza said. The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, Esparza said.
A second stabbing occurred in the Mission District around 1:40 a.m. on the 3000 block of 16th Street. The victim was talking to a security guard outside when he was approached by the suspect, described as a male aged around 20 to 25. The suspect allegedly punched the victim, causing the victim to flee. It was only after he left the area, however, that the victim realized that he had been stabbed in the back, Esparza said. The victim drove himself to the hospital and is being treated for non-life threatening injuries.
The last and most serious stabbings occurred on the first block of Stillman Street near Third Street, near South Park, Esparza said. Five suspects, all described as Hispanic males around 23 to 24 years old, first approached a single victim who was waiting for friends in a parking lot. They allegedly beat that victim unconscious, before walking up Stillman and encountering two additional victims.
One suspect allegedly stabbed a victim and took his necklace, and the other victim was slashed on the wrist during the robbery, Esparza said. Some of the injuries sustained in the South Park-area attack were life-threatening, Esparza said.
The suspects fled in an unknown direction in that attack, and no arrests have been made.
