Muni Rider Stabbed With a Fork

A Muni rider was stabbed with a fork on the 22-Fillmore after an argument, the San Francisco Examiner reports:

The 23-year-old victim was sitting on the bus near 16th Street and Potrero Avenue just before 5 p.m. when a 51-year-old man sat down next to her and spread his legs wide, police Sgt. Daryl Fong said.

This made the woman uncomfortable, so she got up and stood next to the back door to get off at the next stop, Fong said.

The suspect got up and began yelling at her. The two engaged in an argument before the bus stopped in the 2100 block of 16th Street, Fong said. The suspect pushed past her to get off the bus. She pushed back, and he allegedly turned around and stabbed her in the hand with a fork before fleeing the scene.

Wait, so the seat hog (otherwise known as a mansitter) happened to have a dinner fork with him? Is a dinner fork the new self defense weapon?

This is not the first cutlery-related incident on Muni, mind you. Last year two drunk man got into it on Muni and one of them stabbed the other with a dinner fork. That particular trip ended in the hospital.

Look out for forks, folks.
