San Francisco police today are looking for clues in a stabbing Wednesday night that left a 25-year-old man with life-threatening wounds.
According to police, officers found the bloody and intoxicated man leaning against a wall at the corner of Mission Street and Cortland Avenue.
The man had been stabbed on both sides of his chest and had knife wounds to his left cheek, arm and eye, said Capt. Paul Chignell, commander of the Ingleside Station.
The victim was unable to talk. He was transported to San Francisco General Hospital, where he remains in critical condition.
The area where the man was found, in the lower Bernal Heights-Mission District corridor, sees its fair share of trouble, Chignell said.
“We have some issues relating to some of the nightclubs in the area. There’s drinking and fights that spill out of some of the clubs,” he said.
