San Francisco logged another stabbing early this morning when a 34-year-old man was slashed in the chest in the city's Tenderloin neighborhood.

Officer Albie Esparza says the cops don't have many details on the incident, as the victim refused to talk to police about it. But here's what we can tell you:

At about 1:24 a.m., police were called to the 700 block of Larkin Street where they found the victim bleeding with stab wounds in his chest. The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital where he's being treated for life-threatening injuries, Esparza says.

Police didn't have a motive for the crime, and said that the suspect was only described as a 5-foot-8 Asian male.

  • 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.'"
