Teens Stab Man On Muni Bus After Alleged Altercation

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A man stabbed aboard a Muni bus on Friday night is in life-threatening condition according the San Francisco Police Department.

Police Lieutenant Troy Dangerfield said a 32-year-old man was stabbed multiple times in the torso at Mission and Precita Streets while riding the 14 bus just before 8 p.m.

Apparently the man got into an altercation with a group of male and female teenagers and it is believed the weapon used was a screwdriver.

KCBS’ Anna Duckworth Reports:

The incident is still under investigation and officials are also checking Muni surveillance cameras that were on the bus.

The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital where he is being treated for his injuries which include lacerations to his face.

It’s unclear if the victim knew anyone in the group and no one is in custody, though police have talked to several people who were aboard the bus.
