Two men were stabbed Monday evening outside a Popeye’s Chicken fast food restaurant in the Mission neighborhood, according to police, but it is unclear what the fight was over.
San Francisco Police Officer Albie Esparza said a fight broke out between five males around 5:45 p.m. Two of the men were stabbed and transported to San Francisco General Hospital with injuries that were not considered life-threatening.
Esparza said according to the victims, described as 24- and 27-year-old males, they were standing outside the fast food restaurant when three Hispanic males, described as in their late teens and early 20s, approached them and the five began to fight.
Esparza said the men may have known each other. The department’s gang taskforce is investigating.
No arrests have been made, Esparza said.
Popeye’s is located at 22nd and Mission streets.
