A woman who was stabbed in the stomach in San Francisco's Tenderloin neighborhood Sunday night is recovering in the hospital.
Three female assailants injured three women in separate stabbings on San Francisco's Mission Street this past weekend.
Crime rates in San Francisco decreased in 2014 compared to 2013 for both violent and property crimes.
The murder rate in the United States remains higher than in virtually all other developed countries.
San Jose police have released the name of the man suspected of brutally slaying a homeless woman with a samurai sword Monday evening.
A sword-wielding San Jose man is in custody for allegedly slashing and stabbing a well-known homeless woman to death with a samurai-style weapon.
Murders in San Jose jumped from 20 in 2010 to 41 in 2011. And the last one of the year was a real doozy.
