Homeless Man Wakes Up as He is Stabbed and Beaten

SAN FRANCISCO — A homeless man was found injured on a San Francisco Municipal Railway platform after being stabbed nearby, a police spokeswoman said.

The stabbing was reported at 5:53 a.m. Wednesday morning, near The Embarcadero and Folsom Street, where a group of homeless people were camping on the sidewalk, San Francisco police Sgt. Danielle Newman said.

The victim woke up to someone beating him up and then stabbing him in the torso, Newman said.

The victim escaped and went to a Muni platform, where he was found and taken to a hospital with injuries that are not considered life-threatening, according to Newman.

The suspect, also believed to be a homeless person, remains at large and police are interviewing witnesses to try to identify the suspect, Newman said.
