Man stabs would-be thief in Dolores Park

A man stabbed a suspect who tried to steal his bicycle Wednesday afternoon in Dolores Park.

In the August 23 incident, which occurred at 4:44 p.m., five suspects attempted to rob the victim of his bike. The victim “pulled out a knife and slashed” the arm of one of the suspects, police said.

All five suspects were detained, but Officer Giselle Linnane, a police spokeswoman, said that they were¬†“released pending further investigation.”

No information was available on the victim.

Concerns about safety in the park have increased in recent weeks, especially after a shooting earlier this month in which three people were injured.

At a Monday, August 21 town hall held to talk about safety in the park, Mission Station Captain Bill Griffin said that since the shooting, police officers are in the park every day, rather than just on weekends. The staffing pattern will continue, said Griffin.
