A man waiting for a Muni bus in the Castro is recovering today, after another man walked up and stabbed him in the neck.

According to the San Francisco Police Department, a 41-year-old man was waiting at a Muni stop on the 3900 block of 17th Street (which is between Castro and Noe Streets) at 8:49 Wednesday night.

Suddenly, police say, a 52-year-old man walked up to him and told the aspiring Muni rider "that he was going to kill him."

The suspect then followed through on his threat, stabbing the waiting man "in the neck with a knife," according to SFPD's report on the stabbing.

Emergency responders rushed the victim to San Francisco General Hospital, with injuries that police say are not considered life threatening.

The attacker, police say, was arrested shortly after the stabbing, and remains in custody as of Thursday morning.
