The shooting on 22nd and Shotwell Streets around 7 p.m. Sunday dominated the weekend crime news, but there were also a couple of robberies and assaults. The Shotwell victim was transported to SFGH for non life threatening injuries. Still no arrests have been made.
Later Sunday, a man was stabbed during around 6:40 p.m. at 20th and Alabama Streets while still celebrating Carnaval. The victim was transported to SFGH with life threatening injuries. No arrests have been made.
Earlier Sunday morning two robberies took place one at 5:05 a.m. and then another at 5:06 a.m. The first robbery occurred at 2715 Folsom Street, where two men were approached by two men males who appeared to be in their late teens. They took a cell phone from one of the victims, according to police.
Then, a minute later, suspects with the same description approached a man on 22nd and Shotwell, brandished a knife, went through the victim’s pockets and struck him over the head with a heavy object. The victim was transported to SFGH for non life threatening injury and the suspects were taken into custody.
Police said the suspects in both robberies have similar descriptions, and it’s possible the two in custody were responsible for both, but they could not say for sure.
On Monday, a 50-year-old man was standing outside of a bar on 16th Street and Rondel at 6:15 p.m., when he was attacked by a 43-year-old male who strangled him and threw him to the ground. The victim was able to struggle free and get away from the suspect, who went back into the bar.
The bartender, however, refused to serve the suspect so he left and then struck a 58-year-old woman, knocking her to the ground. She was transported to SFGH for non life threatening injuries and the suspect is in custody.
Later, around 12:20 a.m. Tuesday on the 1100 block of South Van Ness, a man was leaving a store when two male suspects asked him for his beer. The victim began to run away and the suspects chased after him. The victim fell and one of the suspects hit the victim with a bat.
The suspects went through the victim’s pockets, but didn’t find anything they wanted, police said. The victim was transported to SFGH for non life threatening injuries. No arrests have been made.
