A 36-year-old man who tried to get into a building on San Francisco’s Polk Street stabbed another man after he was denied entry early this morning, a police spokesman said. The stabbing was reported at 12:27 a.m. in the 1000 block of Polk Street. A man, later identified as San Francisco resident Sanchez Andrews, tried to get into the building.
When he wasn’t allowed inside, he got irritated and pulled out a knife, police spokesman Officer Gordon Shyy said. Andrews allegedly stabbed a 26-year-old man multiple times in the torso, Shyy said. The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with serious injuries but is expected to survive the attack, Shyy said.
Andrews was found a short time later in the 900 block of Geary Street, Shyy said. He was arrested and booked into jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and making criminal threats, Shyy said.
