Betrayed Lover Allegedly Turns To Violence Outside SF Hotel

A man was stabbed at a hotel in San Francisco on Thursday morning, apparently by the boyfriend of a man who stayed overnight with him at the hotel, police said today.

The stabbing was reported at 8:52 a.m. Thursday outside the Sonoma Inn at 1485 Bush St. near Van Ness Avenue.

The 39-year-old victim and another man had spent the night at the hotel and left briefly in the morning. As they were walking back into the building, a suspect approached and stabbed the victim in the abdomen, according to police.

The suspect, described as a man in his 20s, was apparently the boyfriend of the man who was with the victim, police said.

He fled and had not been found as of this morning.

The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital to be treated for injuries that are not considered life-threatening, police said.

Anyone with information about the stabbing is asked to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or to send a tip by text message to TIP411 with “SFPD” in the message.
