Nathan Bartell, 35, of San Francisco was arrested and booked on charges of assault with a deadly weapon and a warrant violation, Newman said. The incident involved a 32-year-old man who was stabbed outside a Marina restaurant after an argument.
The victim and his friends had reportedly been out drinking and went to get some food in the area of Chestnut and Scott streets about 2:20 a.m., Newman said.
Bartell was reportedly in the restaurant and an argument between him and the group ensued, Newman said. The victim and his friends left the establishment and Bartell allegedly followed them out.
The argument continued, Newman said, and at one point the victim told police he was punched in the stomach. When the victim noticed he was bleeding, he realized he had been stabbed.
Bartell reportedly attempted to flee in a taxi, but the victim’s friends were able to hold up the cab until police arrived.
While the victim’s injuries were serious, he is expected to survive, Newman said.
