Man Stabs Woman With Machete, Steals Her Lip Ring
The incident happened at about 6 a.m. on Thursday when the victim was standing at the northwest corner of 20th Street and Harrison in the Mission District. According to police, an unknown man came up behind her and uttered something to her in Spanish -- something she did not understand.
Afterward, he quickly pulled out a machete and stabbed the woman in the leg. As if that wasn't painful enough, he then ripped her lip ring out before jumping into a 4-door sedan and speeding off, says Sgt. Eric O'Neal.
A "good Samaritan" took the injured woman to San Francisco General Hospital where she was treated for a pierced leg and her pierced lip.
Police had no description of the suspect, but if you see a man with a machete roaming the Mission District, definitely call the cops.
