A San Francisco man faces an attempted murder charge for allegedly stabbing a cable car conductor multiple times.
Police say the stabbing happened Sunday afternoon in Chinatown after the conductor had taken a cable car out of service. No riders were aboard during the attack, which left the victim with life-threatening injuries.
Several witnesses directed officers toward a Chinatown apartment, where they arrested 32-year-old George Luong.
Police also cited and released three of his family members for allegedly interfering with an investigation and assault on an officer.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that investigators do not believe the conductor knew the attacker. Police have not discussed a possible motive.
