Three arrested in Dolores Park robbery, stabbing 

A man walking alone through Dolores Park early Saturday morning was stabbed and robbed by a large group of young men.

The victim, an Asian male in his 40s, was walking near a bridge that crosses the Muni tracks on the western edge of the park when confronted by the gang, according to San Francisco police Lt. Michelle Jean of Mission Station.

The group robbed him of his backpack, then beat him and stabbed him five times, Jean said. He then “stumbled” through the park to between 19th and Cumberland streets, where he was picked up by an ambulance.

Police set up a perimeter around the park and arrested three suspects. Two were adults, 18 and 20 years old, and the third was a 17-year-old boy on probation, Jean said. All three suspects were San Francisco residents. Police are still searching for as many as nine more suspects.

The victim was targeted for his backpack and did not appear to know the suspects, police said. He is recovering at San Francisco General Hospital.
