As the earth continues to rotate the sun, so does the troubled intersection of Haight and Stanyan Streets continue to be the site of violence. In today's installment, a stabbing suspect remains on the loose after an altercation at the famed and infamous mouth of Golden Gate Park.
Less than a month after a fatal stabbing at the same intersection and just a few days after a (non-fatal) shooting at the spot, officers from the San Francisco Police Department were again called to the end of Haight Street on Wednesday at 5:33 p.m., on reports of yet another stabbing.
The officers of Park Station (which is a quick jog from the troublesome spot) arrived to discover a 36-year-old man who'd been stabbed in the shoulder.
According to SFPD, the stabbing victim had been arguing with another man when he (that is, the victim), struck his stabber-to-be's dog with a skateboard.
The dog guardian responded by stabbing the skateboard-wielding man. The knifeman, described by SFPD only as male and aged 20-27, fled in an unknown direction, police say.
The victim was transported to the hospital for treatment of his wounds, which police say are not life-threatening.
No arrests have been made in this case, according to SFPD. They ask that if you have any information on this case, you contact SFPD's Anonymous Tip Line at 415-575-4444 or text-a-tip to TIP411 with SFPD at the beginning of the message.
