A group of up to a dozen people stabbed and robbed a 40-year-old San Francisco man walking by himself through Dolores Park early Saturday morning, a spokesman for the San Francisco Police Department said.
Police responded at around 1:30 a.m. to an area of the park around 19th and Church streets and found that the victim had been beaten, robbed and stabbed multiple times in the torso, officer Samson Chan said.
The victim was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Police detained seven people and three of those people have subsequently been arrested, Chan said. The suspects, two adults ages 18 and 20 and one 17-year-old, were arrested on charges of attempted murder robbery, Chan said.
A few suspects are still at large. The incident is under investigation.
Neighbors say that the park has people at all hours of the night using it as a drinking spot. They said they don't feel safe using it in the nighttime.
