Three teenagers arrested in Union Square area stabbing 

Three of four young men were arrested in connection with a stabbing near Union Square early Wednesday morning, police said.

An 18- and 19-year-old were arrested along with one juvenile, Sgt. Monica Macdonald said in a statement. The teens were reportedly involved in an argument with a security guard in the doorway of a store in the 100 block of Powell Street about 2:08 a.m. One of the suspects was reportedly armed with a firearm, Macdonald said.

The security guard was punched by one suspect, which prompted other store employees to offer help.

One of the suspects is alleged to have stabbed one of those employees in the back multiple times, Macdonald said.

Police arrived and, after a search, arrested three of the suspects nearby.

Two of the suspects were identified by police Wednesday afternoon. Since the third is a juvenile, his identity will remain anonymous.

The two adult suspects are Damareay Mitchell, 18, and Antonio Rosales, 19, both of San Francisco.

They were booked on charges of attempted murder, conspiracy, possession of a concealed firearm by a prohibited person, carrying a concealed weapon, possession of stolen property, possession of a stolen firearm, carrying a loaded firearm and possession of a firearm in a public place.

One suspect is still outstanding and he was described as an 18- to 20-year-old man wearing dark clothing, Macdonald said.

Two of the victims were hospitalized in the incident, one for stab wounds to the back and the other for a laceration to the neck, Macdonald said. The injuries were not life-threatening.
