Three people were injured, including one critically, in two separate stabbings in San Francisco on Wednesday morning, according to police.
A man suffered life-threatening injuries after he was stabbed repeatedly in a brawl at Ellis and Leavenworth streets about 2 a.m., Sgt. Danielle Newman said.
He was one of three people who said they were walking to a market when two men approached. An argument ensued and the trio was attacked, Newman said. The victim who reportedly tried to run away was stabbed repeatedly. Another victim also suffered less serious stab wounds.
No arrests have been reported. Police were still trying to determine a motive Wednesday.
However, an arrest was made in connection with an unrelated stabbing that occurred 45 minutes later in the Mission district.
Vanessa Lynn Torres, 45, of San Francisco was booked on aggravated assault charges for allegedly stabbing a man at Mission and 16th streets after a dispute over booze.
The 37-year-old victim was reportedly sharing his "drink" with two other men, but wanted the beverage returned, Newman said. Torres allegedly stabbed him in the back after unsuccessfully requesting that he leave.
