Original Post: A person was rushed to the hospital after being cut near the Occupy SF encampment in San Francisco’s Financial District late Monday night, according to San Francisco fire officials.

Fire crews responded at 11:40 p.m. to 101 Market St. for what appeared to be a stabbing that left a person with a cut to the neck, fire officials said.

The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital. San Francisco police said a stabbing occurred at this time and place, but did not have any information about the victim or a suspect.

The stabbing happened in front of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, where “Reoccupiers” from Occupy SF have been camping since last month, according to the group’s website.

A stabbing Sunday night at the same location left a 28-year-old man in critical condition, according to San Francisco police.

The suspect in Sunday’s stabbing is described as a white man between 20 and 25 years old who is about 5 feet 5 inches tall, weighs about 135 pounds and has blond hair and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing a dark-colored beanie, a dark-colored puffy jacket and black-framed glasses, police said.
