SAN FRANCISOC (CBS SF) — A construction worker was stabbed to death while escorting two suspects away from her construction site in San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood Thursday morning, a police spokeswoman said.

Police responded to reports of the argument in the 300 block of Fifth Street just before 9:30 a.m. and arrested two suspects, Officer Grace Gatpandan said.

The construction worker, a woman who has not been identified, was working at a site on Shipley Street, an alley between Harrison and Folsom streets.

After an argument there, she escorted two suspects, a man and a woman, away from the construction site. When she didn’t come back right away, her co-workers went to check on her and found her stabbed, Gatpandan said.

The other workers saw the man and woman walking away and tried to stop them. They followed them to Fifth and Folsom streets and police arrived and arrested them, Gatpandan said.

The stabbed construction worker was taken to a hospital but died there a short time later.

Police have not released the name of the victim or the two suspects.
