A man was stabbed in San Francisco’s Castro district early Saturday morning and another was hit with a metal pipe in separate cases.

The first incident started at 5:18 a.m. July 11 in Collingwood Park when the victim, 27, and a friend got into a fist fight with the suspect, who’s described as a black male in his 40s.

The victim “later realized he was stabbed,” Officer Grace Gatpandan, a police spokeswoman, said in a summary, and he was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with a non-life threatening stab wound.

In the other incident, which occurred at 3 a.m. Saturday, a man trying to buy beer after hours at a store in the 3900 block of 18th Street threw beer cans at the store clerk, Gatpandan said.

After throwing the cans, the man threatened the clerk, left the shop, and stood outside. The clerk, 23, exited the store and hit the man with a metal pipe.

The almost-customer, 33, was taken to San Francisco General for a laceration to his cheek.

In a summary of the incident, Gatpandan said an arrest was made, but in response to an email about the suspect, she said, “The parties in this incident expressed their desire for the surveillance footage to be reviewed in order to determine what criminal charges, if any, should be made. No one was arrested at the scene. However, upon review of the footage, investigators can issue warrants for one’s arrest,” if the victim still wants a prosecution.
