San Francisco police are looking for an armed who slashed a dog and another man during a scuffle near Telegraph Hill early this morning. 

According to police, a 28-year-old man was standing with his pup near Broadway and Kearny streets at about 1:30 a.m. today when another man walked up with his dog. The two canines began brawling on the street.

One of the dog owners pulled out a knife and began stabbing the other pup in a not-so-smart attempt to get the dog to back down, police say. Another man saw this animal cruelty and intervened. He, too was stabbed, Shyy says. 

The armed dog owner bolted from the scene and has not been located, police say. No word on how the injured pup is feeling today.

  • 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.'"
