Two stabbed in separate robberies over the weekend 

Two people were stabbed in separate robberies Saturday, cops said.

The first incident happened around 4:30 a.m. at Golden Gate and Van Ness avenues, police said. A 31-year-old man was approached by a man, described by police as being between 40 and 50 years old, who demanded cash. The crook then stabbed the victim in the chest, took his cash and fled, police said.

Then around 7 p.m. at Kansas and 20th streets in Potrero Hill, three men, described by police as being around 25 years old, demanded a 19-year-old man’s money, cops said. One of the thugs began to search the victim. The victim tried to fight the hoodlums off but was stabbed.

The victim was able to get away and ran to San Francisco General Hospital to be treated for his injuries, which were not life threatening. He was also able to keep his money from the thugs.

There have been no arrests in either case, police said.
