A man was critically injured in a stabbing in the Tenderloin early Friday morning, police Officer Gordon Shyy said, but his condition has upgraded to stable overnight.
The 25-year-old victim was in the vicinity of Geary and Larkin streets about 1:09 a.m. when a man in his 20s stabbed the victim and a second unknown suspect kicked him, Shyy said.
The stabbing suspect chased the victim a short way before stabbing him again, Shyy said.
When officers arrived at the scene the victim was unresponsive and taken to the hospital with injuries at the time believed to be life threatening. He is now expected to survive.
There was little suspect description and no accounts from witnesses as to what led to the stabbing. Police at the scene were only able to piece together what they know from surveillance footage they reviewed at the scene of the crime, Shyy said.
No arrests have been made.
