The 30-year-old man showed up at his friend’s home in the 2500 block of Jones Street at about 12:50 a.m., and the friend called police.

Investigators learned that the man was at a gas station in Oakland when someone approached him and cut his throat.

After the friend called police, the victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital to be treated for his injuries, which are not considered life-threatening, police said.

San Francisco police Officer Albie Esparza said Oakland police are handling the investigation into the stabbing since it occurred in their city.

Oakland police were not immediately available to provide more details about the stabbing.
