A man was stabbed and seriously injured at about 3 p.m. Monday on Mission Street between 22nd and 23rd streets, according to Police Department Sergeant Murray Daggs, one of about a dozen officers at the scene.

The stabbing left one person with life-threatening injuries, according to police. Footage on the Citizen app, which first reported the crime, shows the victim being carried on a stretcher into a San Francisco Fire Department ambulance.

Daggs said police are investigating the incident and declined to confirm the exact location of the stabbing. However, multiple eyewitnesses saw the stabbing happen in front of Lucky Pork Market (2659 Mission St.).

A man in the area, who asked not to be named, said he saw one man chasing another, on foot, toward 23rd Street. The assailant tackled the man to the ground and stabbed him multiple times before fleeing, he said.

Footage on the Citizen app shows officers providing aid to a man in front of 2641 Mission St.

Meanwhile, police taped off the eastern block from Elite Sports (2637 Mission St.) to Gamestop (2673 Mission St.), and about a dozen officers remained on the scene.

By 4:45 p.m., police reopened the block to traffic.

No arrests were made as of 6:05 p.m.

Although the current condition of the victim is unknown, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner today said there were no deaths from stab wounds yesterday.

Crime is trauma and the county offers different services. Here is a list of services offered through the DA’s office. And here is a link to the SFPD’s victim services.

Victims of violent crime can also contact the Trauma Recovery Center at UCSF.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the SFPD at 415-575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411 and begin the message with SFPD,” police said. “You may remain anonymous.”

Update on Jan. 17: This story was updated to clarify that the victim suffered life-threatening injuries.

  2. The SFPD should move out of the Mission and let the Mission residents “police” themselves. I bet it would result in very little to no crime.

    1. If you want little to no crime you should move to Mexico. I hear it has the lowest crime rate on the planet.
