Man Stabbed in His Sleep

Posted By on Thu, Jan 26, 2012 at 9:39 AM

Wake up! You've been stabbed.
  • Wake up! You've been stabbed.

There are heavy sleepers, and then there are those sleepers who can snooze right through an attempted murder

Such is the case with one man who was sleeping so soundly that he never felt someone stab him in the chest.

Who knows what time the crime happened, but police say the 60-year-old man woke up at about 4 a.m. on the 400 block of Turk Street to discover the puncture wound to his chest.

The rested but injured man was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police have very little information to give us about the incident, which isn't hard to believe considering the victim was not awake when it happened.

  • 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.'"
