Man stabbed by accused burrito thief

A 19-year-old man suffered a small stab wound early Friday morning when he tried to stop a man who allegedly walked into a San Francisco Mexican restaurant, ordered a burrito and then left without paying for it.

Around 12:30 a.m., the suspect entered the restaurant, located in the 2200 block of Mission Street, and ordered a burrito, according to police.

After receiving his food, the suspect left without paying. Another man then chased after the suspect, police said.

The suspect brandished a knife at the victim and allegedly slashed him in the chest, according to police.

The suspect again fled, heading west on 19th street, police said.

The victim was taken to a hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening.

A description of the burrito thief was unavailable and no arrest has been made as of this morning.
