A woman was arrested for allegedly throwing a milkshake at a man and then stabbing him with a knife outside of a business in San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf on Tuesday night, a police spokesman said today.
Timarrah Norris, 18, a San Francisco resident, was arrested in connection with the stabbing reported at about 8:40 p.m. Tuesday in the 2800 block of Jones Street, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.
The 44-year-old victim, a customer in the business, had gotten into an argument and then Norris threw the milkshake at him, Esparza said.
Norris and a juvenile girl went outside along with the victim and the argument turned into a physical scuffle in which Norris allegedly pulled out a knife and stabbed the man in the back, according to Esparza.
The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital to be treated for his injuries, which are not considered life-threatening, Esparza said.
Norris and the girl fled but were taken into custody. Norris was booked into jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon while the girl was released, Esparza said.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Police Department's anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or to send a tip by text message to TIP411 with "SFPD" in the message.
