A man was sliced on the shoulder with a knife in the South of Market district Tuesday after refusing to donate cash to a down-on-his-luck thug, police said.
The 54-year-old victim was walking in the 900 block of Howard Street, near Eighth Street, when the needy hooligan asked for money around 12:50 a.m.
The suspect, described only as a man in his late 30s, cut the victim before fleeing. The victim was transported to San Francisco General Hospital with a laceration to his shoulder, police said.
Nothing was stolen from the victim, police said.
