A man was stabbed to death Wednesday evening in an assault on Mission Street, according to the San Francisco Police Department.
The Chief Medical Examiner’s Office identified the victim as Arthur Pesqueira, 27. They did not list a residency.
Officers from the Mission Police Station responded to the assault between 14th and 15th streets at 10:30 p.m. to find a man suffering from stab wounds.
“Officers rendered aid and summoned medics to the scene,” the SFPD reported. The victim was transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, and later died at the hospital.
The area is near the Arco gas station, Arriba Juntos, a senior home, and the freeway. It is less populated than the other parts of the Mission, especially at night. Neighbors and employees near the area were not aware of the stabbing or the homicide.
This is the seventh homicide in the city and the fourth in the Mission this year.
