A 21-year-old man has been hospitalized for a severe stab wound to the torso after he was found lying on the sidewalk in the Mission District.
Police report that the man was found on Hampshire Street between 22nd and 23rd streets by nearby residents at 11:16 p.m. on Thursday. The neighbors then contacted the police, who found the man bleeding out on the sidewalk. He was then taken to San Francisco General Hospital nearby for life-threatening stab wounds to the chest.
Grace Gatpandan, a police spokesperson, said that despite the injuries the man is “expected to survive.” Because of his wounds, police were unable to do an interview with the man and do not know how he was stabbed, she said. The police have no suspects and have not made an arrest.
