A 23-year-old suspect was taken into custody early Wednesday morning on multiple charges in connection with a stabbing that took place in the Sunset District, San Francisco police said.
A 26-year-old San Francisco woman told police that she was at a 7-Eleven store on 46th Avenue at Judah Street when she believes she was followed to her home.
When she reached the front of her home, 23-year-old Robert Hancock allegedly approached her. The two were involved in a verbal exchange when the suspect reportedly pulled out a knife and stabbed her multiple times, said Sgt. Steve Mannina.
