    A woman sought medical treatment from the Occupy SF encampment when she was stabbed earlier this week.

    She sought first aid from the 99 percent. Just playing the percentages, we suppose.

    A woman stabbed in the Tenderloin in San Francisco on early Tuesday morning sought medical treatment at the Occupy SF encampment, according to the San Francisco Appeal online newspaper.

    The woman was the victim of an attempted robbery at Eddy and Hyde streets at 3:20 a.m. on Tuesday, according to the newspaper. When the thief saw she had no money, he allegedly stabbed her before departing, according to police.

    The woman called her husband to figure out what to do, and the pair hailed a cab and went to the Occupy SF encampment because there's a medical tent there. Someone at the medical tent called an ambulance, which transported the woman to SF General where she was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

    Police are investigating the stabbing, according to police spokesman Sgt. Michael Andraychak.
