A man whose throat was cut during a Valencia Street altercation will survive, police say — but his unwillingness to cooperate with officers will certainly stymie their investigation into the crime.

According to the San Francisco Police Department, the 41-year-old victim was engaged in a "verbal argument" with another man at Valencia and McCoppin Streets at 8:49 p.m. Sunday.

The dispute "became physical," police say, when the suspect, a man in his 30s, "cut the older man "in the throat with a knife."

The victim was transported to San Francisco General Hospital with injuries that miraculously, police say, are not life-threatening.

According to SFPD, however, the victim refused to cooperate with police officers seeking to investigate the crime. Therefore, no arrests have been made, and the throat slasher remains on the loose as of publication time.
