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.

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.
