SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – A man was stabbed after trying to sell a tricycle in San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood on Wednesday evening, a police spokesman said.
The stabbing was reported around 7:45 p.m. Wednesday in the 500 block of Natoma Street.
The 25-year-old victim met with a woman to sell her an adult-size tricycle, and after taking it for a test ride, the woman tried to ride away with it east toward Sixth Street, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.
As the victim tried to chase after the woman, he was struck in the head from behind by a second suspect and then stabbed by a third person, Esparza said.
All three suspects then fled and had not been found as of Thursday afternoon, he said.
The victim was able to retrieve the tricycle and was taken to a hospital to be treated for his injuries, which were not considered life-threatening, according to police.
One of the suspects was described as a black woman between 45 and 50 years old who is about 5 feet 6 inches tall, 200 pounds and was wearing a white and black jacket, black pants and white shoes, Esparza said.
The second suspect was described as a black woman between 50 and 55 years old who is about 5 feet 6 inches tall, 140 pounds and was wearing a black pullover jacket, blue jeans, white socks and black shoes, according to Esparza.
There was no description available for the third suspect, he said.
