Two men were sliced with a box cutter early Sunday evening after a melee at the intersection of McAllister and Hyde streets, police said.

The incident occurred near the LGBT Pride parade festivities when the victims, both 27, were walking with some friends. According to police, someone from another group elbowed one of the victims and the two groups got into a fight. It is unclear whether the incident was related to the Pride event.

Someone from the other group then pulled out a box cutter and sliced one of the victims in the scalp and the other in the back, police said. Their injuries were not considered life-threatening.

Man loses blood, gains chivalry points in stabbing

A man was repeatedly stabbed after a woman he was with was accused of stepping on someone else’s foot in the Tenderloin on Saturday, police Officer Albie Esparza said.

The 37-year-old victim and a 34-year-old woman were walking westbound in the 400 block of Eddy Street toward Hyde Street about 5:05 p.m. when another man began pushing and slapping the woman, claiming she had stepped on his foot, Esparza said.

The woman’s male companion intervened and a fight ensued. He was slashed and stabbed numerous times in the stomach and head.

He was transported to the hospital for his injuries, which were reportedly not life-threatening. The woman was not seriously injured.

The knife-wielding suspect fled to the 300 block of Hyde Street, where he was arrested.

Jonny Edward Jones, 47, of San Francisco was booked on five counts of aggravated assault, Esparza said.
