A man was arrested for an alleged stabbing in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood Tuesday evening, a police spokesman said. Raul Martinez, 19, of San Francisco, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after a stabbing was reported just before 8 p.m. in the 200 block of Leavenworth Street, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.
Martinez and the victim, a 35-year-old man, were walking toward each other on Leavenworth Street when Martinez allegedly pulled out a knife and stabbed the man in the leg, Esparza said. The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital to be treated for his injuries, which are not considered life-threatening, Esparza said. Police found Martinez shortly afterward in the 400 block of Larkin Street, about two blocks away, according to Esparza. The knife believed to be used in the stabbing was also recovered, he said.
