Two men were stabbed early Tuesday morning near San Francisco’s Dolores Park.

The occurred at 3 a.m. December 27 when the men, both 20,
who’d been “hanging out” in the area of 20th and Church streets were approached by two suspects who asked one of the men for his wallet. When he said, “No,” one suspect stabbed him and his companion in the face, according to Officer Robert Rueca, a police spokesman. Both suspects fled on foot.

The victims were taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Nothing was stolen.

Rueca described the suspects as Hispanic males in their mid-20s.

In another recent incident, three men were burglarized in the Castro district.

At 7 p.m. on Christmas Day, Sunday, December 25, Rueca said, the men were cooking for the holiday in the upstairs kitchen of a house in the first block of Hartford Street.

One of the men, who’s 71, went downstairs to the home’s in-law unit and discovered that his credit card, watch, and wedding ring were missing. A watch and cash belonging to the second victim, 54; and clothing belonging to the third victim, 59, were also missing. The back door was “wide open,” Rueca said.

“No suspect was seen,” he said.
