Late last night/early Thursday morning after 2 a.m. police responded to two separate stabbing incidents in the Mission. The first occurred around 2:20 a.m. when a fight broke out amongst a group of people about a block from the 16th Street BART station.
Police arriving at the scene on the 2100 block of Mission Street near 17th, found one man in his 30s suffering from a stab wound. The victim was taken by ambulance to S.F. General Hospital along with two other unidentified subjects. No arrests have been made and no suspect descriptions have been released in the incident.
About an hour later around 3:30 a.m, farther South in the Mission at 26th and Folsom Streets, police responded to another report near Garfield Square to find a male adult suffering from a knife wound in the abdomen. According to police, the man had been walking alone when two suspects approached him and asked if he had any gang affiliations — a common pre-attack question we heard reports of a few times last year. When the victim replied that he was not, in fact, in any gang, one of the suspects pulled out a knife and stabbed him. The victim was taken to S.F. General in serious condition.
Anyone with additional information on either incident should call SFPD's anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or via text to TIP411.
