Two men were injured, one critically, in a stabbing in San Francisco's Tenderloin neighborhood early this morning, a police spokeswoman said.

The stabbing was reported around 2 a.m. near Ellis and Leavenworth streets.

The victims were walking to a market when two suspects approached and confronted them, police spokeswoman Sgt. Danielle Newman said.

During the confrontation, one suspect took out a knife and stabbed the men. One of the victims tried to run away but was chased down by the suspects, who continued to stab him multiple times, Newman said.

The suspects, believed to be Hispanic men between 25 and 30 years old, then fled and remained at large as of this morning, she said.

One was described as wearing a baseball cap, a white hooded sweatshirt and dark jeans, and the other wore a vest, white T-shirt and jeans, Newman said.

The victims were taken to San Francisco General Hospital, one with life-threatening injuries, Newman said.

Anyone with information about the stabbing is asked to call the Police Department's anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411 with "SFPD" in the message.
