According to police, an unidentified man suffered life-threatening injuries this morning after being attacked by an unknown assailant with a "sharp object" on the 200 block of Haight Street. 

Police report that the victim was approached by a man he didn't know sometime around 4am on Haight Street between Buchanan and Laguna. The suspect attacked the victim, stabbing him in the chest and throat. 

Though police say there were witnesses on the scene, the suspect apparently fled without anyone getting a good look at him. The victim was taken to SF General Hospital in critical condition.
