    A 36-year-old man was robbed and stabbed early Thursday morning after  he let a woman use his motel room bathroom, San Francisco police said.

    The stabbing happened at about 3:45 a.m. at a motel in the 900  block of Harrison Street, in the city's South of Market district, police  said.

    The victim had answered a knock on his door from a woman who asked  to use his bathroom, police said. After using the bathroom, the woman  reportedly opened the motel room door for a man outside, who attempted to rob  the victim.

    A struggle ensued, during which the victim was stabbed by the male  intruder several times in the back and hand, spokeswoman Sgt. Lyn Tomioka  said.

    Both suspects then fled with the man's possessions.

    No arrests have been made, and no detailed description of the  suspects was available.

    The victim was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive,  Tomioka said.
