A suspect “yelled out an obscenity” at a 24-year-old man and then stabbed him in the arm Sunday morning (February 26) in San Francisco’s Castro district, according to police.

The 1:15 a.m. incident occurred when the victim was walking near 18th and Castro streets and the suspect, who appeared to be 40, shouted at him. After the suspect stabbed the victim, the suspect fled eastbound on 18th, Officer Giselle Talkoff, a police spokeswoman, said in a summary.

The victim, whose injury was non-life threatening, was taken to a hospital.

The suspect was a white male, but no other details about him were available. No arrests have been made.

Talkoff didn’t respond to an email from the Bay Area Reporter asking whether the obscenity was an anti-LGBT slur.
