A 25-year-old man was sent to the hospital with life-threatening injuries after a man stabbed him and his friend near San Francisco General Hospital at 6:20 p.m. Monday, police say.

The two victims, the other a 34-year-old male, got into an argument with two male suspects, thought to be in their early 20s, at 22nd Street and Potrero Avenue. Those two suspects left and returned with a third male of a similar age, and a brawl ensued. The third suspect used a knife to stab the victims, after which all three of them fled. 

The victims were taken to the hospital. The 34-year-old was treated for non-life-threatening injuries, and the 25-year-old remains in critical condition.  

No arrests have been made.
