The San Francisco Police Department is seeking a teen suspect today, following a serious stabbing in the area of 16th and Mission Streets Monday evening.

According to the SFPD, a person walking through the parking lot of a store near the 1900 block of Mission Street (which is between 15th and 16th Streets) spotted a 32-year-old man who was injured and bleeding at around 5:30 Monday afternoon.

After that person called an ambulance for the injured man, police arrived and were told by the victim that he had been stabbed by a 14-year-old boy at 16th and Mission Streets.

Police say that though officers then went to the area described by the victim, they "could not locate a crime scene."

The stabbing victim was transported to San Francisco General Hospital with "life threatening" stab wounds to the chest, police say.

No arrests in the case have been made as of Tuesday afternoon, police say. Additional information on the suspect or a motive behind the crime was not available as of publication time.
