Duboce Park Dog Walker Stabbed

A man walking his dog in San Francisco’s Duboce Park early Thursday morning was stabbed, police said.

The 38-year-old man was at the park, located at Duboce Avenue and Scott Street, around 1:30 a.m. when the dog ran free, according to police.

The victim approached a male suspect who was also at the park to ask if he had seen the dog.

The suspect told the victim that he should get himself and the dog out of the park.

The victim felt threatened and made a kicking motion at the suspect in hopes of scaring him, according to police.

That was when the suspect took out a knife and stabbed the man in the leg, police said.

The victim was treated for an injury not considered life-threatening.

The man with the knife managed to elude police.

    That’s not a “victim,” that’s a co-combatant. Plus if you’re out in Duboce Park at 1:30 in the morning you’re just another bum anyway.

    This is a yet another reason to leash your dog t – unless of course you were hoping for this type of excitement.

    Quite sketchy, I can see how the “suspect” was the one who felt threatened by the cruising “victim.” Is there any confirmation that the dog in question even existed?

    SF Dog Walker does not operate in Duboce Park at 1:30 am. It takes dogs to McLaren and Funston parks for 60+ minutes of off-leash play.
