Three separate altercations led to stabbings in several areas of San Francisco overnight, police said today.
There was only one arrest reported in the three cases, which occurred within the same span of time Thursday night and early this morning as two shootings in the city.
Police reported to the first stabbing at 10:53 p.m. Thursday in the 200 block of Battery Street in the city’s Financial District.
A group fight ended with a 28-year-old man being stabbed in the chest, police said. No information on a suspect was provided.
After a different dispute at Third and Folsom streets, a 23-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of stabbing a 33-year-old woman on the chin with a pocketknife, according to police.
The stabbing, which was reported at 2:17 a.m., came after the suspect was involved in an altercation with the victim’s boyfriend, police said. The victim allegedly pepper sprayed the suspect.
Responding officers arrested the suspect, whose name was not provided.
About at hour later, at 3:10 a.m. in the 700 block of O’Farrell Street, there was another stabbing, police said.
In that incident, a victim got into an argument with four men in their 20s “about how to treat females,” police said. The quarrel turned violent when one of the suspects stabbed the victim multiple times.
All of the victims in these cases suffered injuries not considered life-threatening.
The victims of two separate shooting incidents early this morning are also expected to survive.
At 12:09 a.m., a 21-year-old man was driving on Sunnydale Avenue, near Hahn Street, when an unknown suspect in a white Dodge Caravan began shooting at him with a handgun, according to police.
Then at 2:18 a.m., a 30-year-old man was standing in the 2000 block of Mission Street, near 16th Street, when a four-door sedan with tinted windows parked in front of him — leading to an argument and one of the vehicle’s occupants shooting him, according to police.
In both cases, the suspects fled in a vehicle and remain outstanding.
