District Attorney Declines To File Charges In Urination/Stabbing Case

Prosecutors have declined to file charges against a man accused of stabbing two men in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood on Memorial Day, according to a San Francisco District Attorney’s Office spokesman.

Alton Ray Moore, 49, who has no known address, was arrested following the stabbings reported just before 2 p.m. Monday near Larkin and Geary streets, according to police.

However, prosecutors declined to file charges against Moore due to a lack of evidence, district attorney’s office spokesman Alex Bastian said today.

Moore allegedly urinated in an area where the two victims, men ages 27 and 37, were at a Memorial Day weekend barbecue.

Police had initially said the men were construction workers, but it appears they were not working in the area, but rather were attending a social event.

The men confronted Moore, who allegedly fled the area and the pair chased after him. Moore then allegedly pulled out his knife and stabbed the men.

The 27-year-old man was taken to the hospital with serious injuries, while the 37-year-old man suffered a stab wound to his arm, according to police.

Police had arrested Moore on suspicion of attempted murder and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon. The knife used in the stabbings was found and taken into police custody.
