A man was seriously injured in a stabbing in San Francisco's Polk Gulch neighborhood Tuesday night, police said today.

The stabbing was reported around 9:30 p.m. at Polk and Pine streets.

The victim and suspect met at a nearby cafe and then left. As they got to the street corner, an argument began and the victim was stabbed in the torso, police said.

The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital to be treated for his injuries, which were initially considered life threatening.

However, he is now expected to survive, police spokesman Officer Gordon Shyy said this morning.

The suspect was last seen fleeing on a bicycle south on Polk Street. He was described as a white man between 40 and 50 years old who was wearing a black baseball hat, gray jacket and blue jeans and rode a black bicycle, Shyy said.

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