Two men injured in separate gang-related attacks 

Two men were asked what gang they belonged to before they were violently attacked in separate incidents across San Francisco this weekend, police said.

On Saturday, a 24-year-old man was stabbed in the arm with a knife by a group of men who chased him out of a liquor store in the Mission district.

The five men — all described as being in their 20’s — confronted the unidentified man about his gang affiliation before he entered the store, police said.

When he came out, the group gave chase and followed the man to the intersection of 16th and Mission streets, where they stabbed him around 11:25 p.m.

The wounded man was transported to San Francisco General Hospital in non-life threatening condition.

The following evening, a 29-year-old man was attacked with a blunt object in Portola after passengers in an SUV pulled alongside him, asking “if he claimed anything,” police said.

Two men then hopped out of the older model, gray vehicle near the intersection of Paul and San Bruno avenues about 4:16 p.m. and began hitting the man in the head and body with a baton or a pipe.

The men, described as being between the ages of 20 and 25, robbed him of his backpack, wallet and cash before getting back into the car and driving away down San Bruno Avenue.

The injured man was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with a bump on his head, cut to his face and shoulder pain. His condition is not life-threatening.

Police said there were two other people in the car who looked to be 18- to 25-year-old women.

No detailed suspect descriptions are available in either incidents.
