Suspect in Tenderloin Flees After Stabbing Woman in Chest

A woman stabbed another woman in the chest Wednesday night in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood, a police spokesman said today.

At about 10 p.m. Wednesday, a 40-year-old woman was walking near the intersection of Leavenworth and Eddy streets when another woman bumped into her. The woman who bumped into her engaged in an argument and then stabbed her in the chest with a sharp object before fleeing, according to San Francisco police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza.

Police responded and found the victim suffering from a puncture wound to the chest. She was transported to San Francisco General Hospital with injuries that are not considered life-threatening, Esparza said.

The female suspect, who appears to be a stranger to the victim, fled before officers arrived and remains at large.

Esparza said the suspect is described as a white woman between 25 and 30 years old, standing only 4 feet 5 inches tall and weighing 90 pounds.

The suspect had black hair and was wearing a black jacket and black boots at the time of the assault, Esparza said.
