Car Crash Ends in Stabbing, Robbery Near USF

Posted By on Tue, Jul 8, 2014 at 12:18 PM


San Francisco Police are investigating a crime near University of San Francisco where a man was stabbed and robbed during a fender bender late last night.

According to Sgt. Danielle Newman, a 29-year-old man was driving in his employer-issued vehicle for a work-related meeting at about 9:45 p.m. when he collided with a white four-door sedan on the 2800 block of Turk Street.

What happened next is a little less clear:

"Police never got to interview the victim," Newman told SF Weekly. "The story has been relayed through different witnesses that spoke to victim, [who] gave several different versions."

In one version, the victim claims he was pulled out of the vehicle and mugged before passing out. He says when he woke up his money was missing.

However, a second version of the story goes like this: The victim pulled over after the accident and then was jumped as he called 911. All police know is that the victim was punched, stabbed, and robbed at some point after the accident.

The attackers fled the scene and are still on the lam.

The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with minor injuries. He vehicle was also towed.

And yes, he did make it to his work appointment, albeit it a little late.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
