A 22-year-old man was stabbed in the stomach, neck and back while standing at the corner of 16th and Mission streets in San Francisco’s Mission District early Thursday morning, police said today.
Police said the victim was standing at the intersection shortly before 12:15 a.m. on Thursday when two males approached him and asked him where he was from.
The victim replied “nowhere,” at which point the suspects punched and kicked the victim to the ground, officers said.
One of the suspects pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim in his stomach, neck and back, according to police.
He was transported to San Francisco General Hospital with injuries that are not considered life-threatening, police said.
Both suspects fled the scene prior to the arrival of police and no arrests have been made in connection with the stabbing.
The motive for the attack remains under investigation.
