A cabbie who was beaten and knifed in the Castro during a robbery has survived the night, the San Francisco Medical Examiner's office moments ago told SF Weekly.

The cabbie, a man of about 50, was attacked early last evening at the 200 block of States Street -- not exactly a high-crime area. The victim was first beaten, then stabbed several times, and, finally, robbed, police spokesman Officer Boaz Marilies told the media.

The suspect is described as a black man wearing a black-and-grey hooded sweatshirt. It is unknown if the assailant had been a passenger in the cab or had simply been walking the streets.

  • 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.'"
