Police report two violent incidents in the Mission yesterday and early this morning.

At 12:44 a.m. on Friday, a 26-year-old woman and a 40-year old man were arguing on Mission street between 18th and 19th streets. The argument escalated into a physical altercation, and culminated in the man stabbing the woman in the upper arm with a knife. The man fled the scene and no arrest was made. The woman was left with a small puncture wound and was transported to San Francisco General Hospital.

One block over, on 17th and Mission, four male suspects in their twenties assaulted a 27-year-old man.  At 2:50 this morning, the four men beat the victim to unconsciousness, then took his backpack containing miscellaneous papers. One of the men was arrested by police, but the three others managed to flee. The victim had head pain and abrasions on his elbows and knees, and was transported to St. Luke’s Hospital in non-life-threatening condition.
