SAN FRANCISCO (BCN) — Thanksgiving Day dinner-table disputes turned ugly for at least two families in San Francisco this year, police said today.

One person was arrested and one person was hospitalized after a stabbing that occurred around 8 p.m. in the 400 block of Serrano Drive in the Parkmerced neighborhood, police said.

The suspect, a 28-year-old man, allegedly grabbed a knife from the kitchen stabbed a 25-year-old man after a family dispute that began at the dinner table, according to police.

The suspect fled on foot but was later located and arrested. The victim was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive his injuries.

In a second incident around 9:30 p.m. Thursday in the city’s Portola neighborhood, two women were having dinner with a 30-year-old man at a home in the 700 block of Burrows Street when he “displayed his firearm,” police said.

When the women decided to leave, the suspect pointed the handgun at one of them and fired rounds into the air, police said. The suspect ran away, but was later taken into custody. The women were not injured.

Police have not released the names of the suspects in either incident.
