Authorities are investigating the stabbing of a Good Samaritan in San Francisco early Saturday morning near City Hall.
The incident happened while the victim was trying to protect a stranger. It happened at around 4:30 a.m. at Larkin Street and Golden Gate. The Good Samaritan was driving down Golden Gate when he saw a group of ten people beating up another person.
He intervened and the group turned on him and attacked.
"He was trying to be a Good Samaritan and in turn, the group that was assaulting the original male then assaulted the Good Samaritan," said SF police Sgt. Kevin Horan.
Police said the Good Samaritan, a man in his 30s, received four knife wounds to his stomach and was rushed to an area hospital. There, doctors were able to stabilize him. His injuries were not considered life threatening.
The victim's vehicle was also vandalized by subjects at the time of the attack.
Both the attackers and the first victim ran away before officers arrived on the scene. Authorities have no suspects in the case.
Watchdogs are questioning an exclusive agreement between the City of Oakland and a non-profit group, tapped to lead a multi-million dollar project to redevelop the area around the Coliseum BART station.
