SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A man was seriously wounded after being stabbed near Candlestick Park as he was going to watch the San Francisco 49ers' home game.
Police Sgt. Michael Andraychak said two men suspected of attacking the 27-year-old Elk Grove man Sunday were arrested a short distance away.
Andraychak said the victim was with five friends when the suspects approached them on the southwest side of the stadium. He said they got into an argument and one of the suspects pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim in the torso.
He was rushed to the hospital, and Andraychak said he was expected to survive.
Andraychak said the victim and his attackers were all 49ers fans.
Police identified the suspects as a 30-year old San Francisco man and a 22-year-old Daly City man.
