Brutal fight sends two to hospital; one hit with bat, one stabbed 

A vicious brawl in an Outer Richmond district home sent two men to the hospital Saturday, one with a critical head injury from a baseball bat and the other with a stab wound to the stomach, police said Monday.

The fight stemmed from an argument between a man and his roommate's guest in the 800 block of 47th Avenue around 10 p.m., police Officer Albie Esparza said.

At one point during the brawl, the 49-year-old resident of the home pummeled the 46-year-old guest in the head with the baseball bat. The 46-year-old man then stabbed the 49-year-old in the stomach, police said.

"The fight continued for quite some time in the residence," Esparza said.

The baseball bat victim was transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, police said. His condition Monday was not immediately known.

The stabbed man’s injury was not life-threatening, police said. He initially fled the scene, but cops later apprehended him and took him to the hospital, police said.

As of Monday morning, the men's identities were not being released, Esparza said.

Police have not said what caused the fight.
