A 33-year-old man is clinging to life today after he was violently stabbed while standing on the sidewalk in the city's Mission District.

Police had very few details about the crime, but said officers were called to 22nd and Bartlett streets about 6 p.m. on Wednesday on reports of a stabbing. When they arrived, they found the victim on the sidewalk with a stab wound to the left side of his chest.

The suspect -- who was only described as a man in his 30s -- ran off after the stabbing and has not been arrested.

Earlier this week, a 27-year-old woman was stabbed repeatedly as she sat inside her parked car on 21st and Shotwell streets in the Mission. The woman did not know the three men who reportedly hopped in the back seat of her car and attacked her. She was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with life-threatening wounds.

  • 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.'"
