Just give him your iPod - CHRISSINJO VIA FLICKR

What better reason to comply with the demands of a dude with a sharp object in his hand: Because he might stab you!.

Police say a 54-year-old inebriated man was walking on the 900 block of Howard Street after a night out on the town Saturday when an unknown suspect, who was described as a white man between 35 and 40 years old, approached him from behind and asked him to hand over his stuff.

The victim, drunk and confused, and perhaps penniless after the long evening of boozing didn't give his mugger anything except what the suspect thought was a good excuse to stab him.

The suspect pulled out a sharp object, possibly a knife, stabbed the victim in the shoulder and ran off, according to police reports.

The victim, who was treated at the hospital, didn't lose any of his possessions, except a little blood.

  • 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.'"
