San Francisco Man Arrested Following Thursday Stabbing Attack in Pacifica

PACIFICA (CBS SF) -- A 41-year-old San Francisco man was arrested Thursday evening on suspicion of stabbing an 18-year-old man in the leg just before 5 p.m. at Linda Mar Shopping Center, Pacifica police said.

The victim was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

After the suspect, who was later identified as Russell Hess of San Francisco, fled the shopping center by car, an all-county bulletin went out and a Colma officer spotted him, according to a statement by Pacifica police chief Daniel Steidle.

Russell is being held at the San Mateo County Jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, Steidle said.
