A 45-year-old man was arrested yesterday morning after allegedly stabbing a homeless man who sleeps in front of his house.

Officer Gordon Shyy says the attack happened at about 3 a.m. on Monday when he saw the homeless man outside his house on the 400 block of Natoma. The two had an argument over property; the resident kicked the homeless man's stuff then pulled out a knife and stabbed him in the arm.

The 42-year-old victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital where he was treated for a minor stab wound.

The neighbor was later arrested where he spent the remainder of his slumber in jail.

  • 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.'"
