Apart from a spree of baseball bat assaults, this weekend saw numerous other crime incidents according to SFPD.

Friday night saw a stabbing on Folsom street between 14th and 15th streets. At 9:44 p.m., a 43-year-old man was walking when a man of unknown age walked up to him and started to punch him in the face. The suspect then pulled a knife and attempted to stab the victim. A struggle ensued, during which the victim sustained numerous cuts to the chest and face. The victim was transported to the hospital, but his injuries are considered non-life-threatening. No arrest was made.

On Saturday at 1:41 a.m. on San Carlos between 20th and 21st streets, two men approached a man and woman on the street and one of the suspects grabbed the man’s smartphone. The woman confronted the man who had taken the phone, only to be punched in the face by the man she confronted and attacked from behind by the second suspect. The woman suffered facial redness and swelling but was not transported to the hospital. No arrest was made.

A robbery occurred a few hours later on Mission street at Precita Avenue. At 4:30 a.m. on Saturday, four men and a woman approached a 39-year-old man who was walking home from behind and hit him on the head hard enough to knock him to the ground. They grabbed his backpack, wallet, smartphone and electronic tablet before fleeing in an unknown direction. No arrest was made.  The man complained of head pain, but refused transport to San Francisco General.

One robbery from earlier last week were also reported. On 16th and Mission streets Wednesday evening, a man and woman approached a 46-year-old man from behind and grabbed him by the neck. They demanded his ATM card and Social Security card and then took off on foot.
