Posted By on Mon, Mar 17, 2014 at 2:52 PM


San Francisco police are looking for three guys who attacked a trio of men in the Tenderloin on Sunday, leaving one of the victims in critical condition.

Officer Albie Esparza tells us that on Sunday at about 2:30 a.m, the three victims were hanging out in front of a pizza place on the 400 block of Ellis Street when they got into a verbal altercation with another group of men.

One of the suspects pulled out a sharp object and stabbed one victim in the side of the head and sliced another victim's throat.

The third victim was beaten and suffered multiple contusions, Esparza says.

The stabbing victims were taken to San Francisco General Hospital where one is clinging to life and the second is expected to recover.

The suspects ran off on foot and are still on the loose. The first suspect is described as a black man between the ages of 20 and 29, wearing a shiny silver baseball hat, a black jacket with grey sleeves, and blue jeans. He was also wearing a long chain necklace and he had a chin-strap goatee; the second suspect was described as a light-skinned black man between the ages of 20 and 29, wearing a red short sleeved football jersey, and jeans. He had shoulder length dreadlocks; the third suspect was described as a black man between the ages of 30 and 39. He was wearing a green camo shirt, blue jeans, and a black baseball cap. He had a tall, skinny build.

No arrests have been made and "we don't no what the fight was about," Esparza says. "We're looking for video surveillance and asking witnesses to call police."

  • 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.'"
