A 27-year-old woman is in the hospital with life-threatening injuries today after she was brutally attacked in the Mission District early this morning.

Officer Albie Esparza says the woman was sitting in the front seat of her car, parked near 21st and Shotwell streets, when three men hopped into the back seat and began stabbing her with a sharp object "all over her upper body."

The men got out of the car and ran eastbound on 21st Street, according to police.

The victim got out of the car, which was later found covered in blood, and started walking toward South Van Ness, screaming for someone to help her. The cops arrived and blocked off the area, searching for the suspects, who were never located. The woman was taken to San Francisco General Hospital where she is clinging to life.

Suspect No. 1 was described as a 25-year-old Hispanic man wearing blue jeans, a green jacket, and a green hat with an "SF" logo; the second suspect was also described as a 25-year-old Hispanic man wearing a white shirt and blue jeans, and was roughly 5-foot-2, police said. There was no description for the third suspect.

Esparza said the suspects didn't rob the woman, and she did not know any of the men who attacked her.

I agree with Mary. Females should never sit in their cars on a street or parking lot----just a bad idea----whatever you have to do, do it inside a safe place, not sitting in your car. My thoughts and prayers are with the injured young lady and her family.

I have heard in the past that sitting in a parked car is very dangerous, as well as walking through a parking lot alone as a female. it's too bad you guys don't have the gun laws we do in Florida. shame on the non humans that did this to her! if they didn't rob her ,it was gang related
