San Francisco Police are investigating a crime near University of San Francisco where a man was stabbed and robbed during a fender bender late last night.
According to Sgt. Danielle Newman, a 29-year-old man was driving in his employer-issued vehicle for a work-related meeting at about 9:45 p.m. when he collided with a white four-door sedan on the 2800 block of Turk Street.
What happened next is a little less clear:
"Police never got to interview the victim," Newman told SF Weekly. "The story has been relayed through different witnesses that spoke to victim, [who] gave several different versions."
In one version, the victim claims he was pulled out of the vehicle and mugged before passing out. He says when he woke up his money was missing.
However, a second version of the story goes like this: The victim pulled over after the accident and then was jumped as he called 911. All police know is that the victim was punched, stabbed, and robbed at some point after the accident.
The attackers fled the scene and are still on the lam.
The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with minor injuries. He vehicle was also towed.
And yes, he did make it to his work appointment, albeit it a little late.
