Three Stabbings, One Cell Phone, One Street Fight

Three victims were stabbed over the weekend — one for his cell phone, one in a street fight and one for being at Capp and 21st at 1:45 a.m. Monday morning, according to the weekend report from the San Francisco Police Department.

The 37-year-old Capp Street victim was jumped and stabbed several times by a suspect between the ages of 30 and 35. The victim was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at San Francisco General Hospital.  The suspect fled in an unknown direction and no arrests have been made.

A 33-year-old man walking at 17th and Harrison on Friday just after midnight was approached by a suspect in his 30s who tried to grab his cell phone. The attempt failed, but the suspect then threatened to shoot the victim. He handed over his cell phone and the suspect fled on 16th Street.

The police found the victim — dazed and bleeding — on the 1000 block of Potrero in Bernal Heights.

A Street Fight Stabbing

A fight erupted on Folsom near 17th Street sometime after 4:30 p.m. Saturday. By 4:55 p.m., police received a call that a 52-year-old man involved in the fight had been stabbed several times on the shoulder and at the back of his ear.

The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.  He has declined to cooperate with police.

The suspect fled on 25th Street and no arrests have been made.

A False Alarm

Police got a call at 1:45 p.m. on Saturday from someone saying that they had received a threat over the phone and reported it to San Francisco General Hospital.

The sheriffs deployed there searched the hospital and located a metal box in the outpatient area of the hospital. The package was not hazardous.

    One of the issues discussed with police chief on Tuesday’s Community meeting was about safety the lack of light in so many areas of the Mission that shelters lowlife attackers that injure neighbors over a freaking phone!!!!!!!…their response “of course” was report it and cal 311.
    Ever since a prostitute entered my home and confronted me I feel watched , I walk with a pepper spray and my phone recording my walks/saving them in my Google cluod.

  2. Rampant street crime continues and are still spiraling at this point of time, it’s still the biggest problem that the police have failed to address. And I think there is no part in the metropolis that are safe today from gun-toting criminals. The police remained failed in planning out effective anti-crime method to control these rising fugitives. Perhaps the only thing that we citizen could do is to be always vigilant and practice some “safeguard ways” that will help protect us.
