City courts on edge with stabbing cases 

A summer of stabbings has San Francisco’s courts brimming.

On Wednesday, Gerard Ramirez, who was arrested Tuesday, was set to be arraigned on four felony counts for the attempted murder of a 40-year-old man walking near Dolores Park, prosecutors said. The incident marked the third city park that saw a vicious stabbing this summer.

On Monday, transient Michael Little, 30, pleaded not guilty to fatally stabbing another homeless man in Buena Vista Park following an argument over a woman, prosecutors said. His bail was set at $1 million.

The two cases are a couple of many recently in which the knife was the preferred tool of brutality in The City this summer. Stabbings have occurred in parks (including Golden Gate Park), outside clubs and bars, and one over the weekend presumably occurred inside a home.

Yet another happened on a Muni platform.
