Robberies, assaults, a shooting and a stabbing took place in the Mission District over the weekend, resulting in multiple transports and one life-threatening injury.

Monday morning at 2:30 a.m., a 38-year-old man was stabbed in an unknown location on Mission Street and went home, where his roommate called the police to report the injury. The victim was taken to San Francisco General in life-threatening condition.

On Sunday at 6 a.m., a witness said a 25-year-old woman was in an illegal gambling den on Mission between 25th and 26th when multiple gunshots were fired outside the establishment. The police say one round went through the front door and hit the victim in the leg. The victim was transported to San Francisco General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, and the suspects, for whom no description was available, fled the area.

Friday morning at 1 a.m., a 42-year-old man was sleeping on the corner of 23rd and Mission streets when he was woken up by a group of men aged 18 to 25. One of the suspects brandished a knife and demanded that the victim give up his belongings. He quickly complied, giving up his backpack, wallet, and cell phone before running away from the group, physically unscathed.

At 4:50 p.m later that day, a 36-year-old man was assaulted in Dolores Park when he was approached by a group of four men in their 20s and struck in the head with a glass bottle. The victim fell to the ground and the suspects continued assaulting him, eventually fleeing eastbound on 19th Street towards Guerrero. The victim, who lost consciousness and suffered cuts to the head, was transported to San Francisco General with non-life-threatening injuries.

Early Saturday morning at 2:40 a.m., a 31-year-old man was standing drunkenly on the corner of 16th and Mission when he was approached by a man and punched in the face. The victim fell to the ground and the suspect rifled through his pockets, stealing his wallet before fleeing the scene.

A few minutes later, at 3:15 a.m., a 41-year-old woman was arguing with a 25-year-old man when the man hit her in the head with a metal rod. He fled the scene and she was taken to San Francisco General for non-life-threatening head injuries.

On Sunday at 10:42 a.m., a 26-year-old man was near 15th and Shotwell when he was approached by a man in his late 20s or early 30s and punched in the head. The suspect stole the victim’s camera and fled on foot. The victim suffered some pain but did not seek medication treatment.

Monday morning at 5 a.m., a 25-year-old man was near 16th and Mission when he was approached by a 28-year-old woman, who started speaking to him as a distraction. The victim was then approached from behind by a 40-year-old man, who faked having a gun and told the victim to go to an ATM and withdraw money. The victim did and handed the money to a third suspect, a 30-year-old woman, before the trio got into a taxi and fled.

  1. This neighborhood! You can’t even stand drunkenly on the corner in the middle of the night and be left alone…

  2. Some of these details are inaccurate ~ I live on the block in the Mission between 25th & 26th, only some few doors down from the incident, which happened on that Saturday, the 17th, at around 5am. The victim was a transgender woman (when asked by medics that later arrived on scene if there were any victims, I heard an officer say that there’s a “male transgender victim” with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound), that I later saw carried out and onto a stretcher with her leg wound wrapped.

    I feel it also worth noting that, for a purportedly illegal operation, there’s still people rushing out of that location to move their vehicles in time for street cleaning.. And this has been the case every morning, so far as I can tell, since the incident, with no increase whatsoever in police activity/surveillance.. In fact, the only time there was a notable police presence was right after it occurred, and at some point during that day, before they opened their doors, again, later that evening..
