A stabbing and vehicle collision, among other things, brought two people to the hospital this weekend, according to San Francisco Police Department reports.
Apparently while trying to hail a cab, a 28-year-old man at 24th and Mission Street was struck by oncoming traffic Sunday at around 6:30 p.m. According to police reports, the vehicle was heading through a green light when it hit him.
The man suffered serious head trauma and was quickly transported to San Francisco General Hospital. Police reports indicate that his injuries are life-threatening, but as of Monday morning had no further updates.
At around 1:30 Sunday morning, an unknown assailant stabbed a 29-year-old man with a knife near the corner of Cesar Chavez and Mission streets. The suspect didn’t take any property but the victim, who had stab wounds on his torso, was taken to San Francisco General Hospital. According to SFPD, his injuries aren’t life-threatening.
The Mission also saw four robberies this weekend.
At around 1 a.m. Saturday, four suspects approached a 26-year-old man at the corner of 16th and Mission. The suspects punched the man in the face, took his wallet and fled. The incident left the man with minor injuries to his face and he was taken to a nearby hospital.
Later that day at around 2:30 p.m. near that same corner, a 74-year-old man was grabbed from behind by a man and woman. Once one of the suspects took the man’s wallet from his pocket and emptied it of cash, the two ran off in an unknown direction.
Sixteenth and Mission saw a third incident at 4:30 a.m. Sunday. Two suspects approached a 27-year-old man and demanded his money. When the man refused, the two suspects punched the man in the face, took his money and ran South on Mission Street.
Another robbery, this one involving a gun, occurred at Alabama and 21st at around 1 a.m. Monday. Two suspects approached a 34-year-old man, brandished a hand gun, and demanded the man turn over his wallet. He did so, and the suspects fled the scene.
