Police stifled by ‘uncooperative’ victims in stabbing attacks 

In two separate stabbings Tuesday, victims refused to rat on their attackers to cops, police said.

The latest involved an argument between friends near the intersection of Francisco and Taylor streets around 2 p.m., police said.

A 28-year-old man was stabbed in the shoulder during the spat, cops said, but his attacker remains at large “due to the victim being uncooperative,” apparently refusing to be a tattletale.

The victim’s injury was described as a “cut to the shoulder.”

Early Tuesday morning, a 47-year-old man who was stabbed in a South of Market alley also declined to play ball with cops, police said.

The “uncooperative” victim refused to provide suspect information or details of the crime against him after he was pierced in the abdomen in Ringold Alley, near Eighth Street, around 3:50 a.m., police said.

He was expected to survive, they said.
