Man in life-threatening condition after stabbing in Tenderloin

A 21-year-old man is in life-threatening condition after being stabbed in the Tenderloin last night.

According to SFPD reports, the victim was near the intersection of Ellis and Leavenworth streets around 10:38 p.m. on December 22,  when a man said to be in his thirties stabbed him with a knife.

The victim was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, and the suspect remains at large.

Both incidents are under investigation.
