A 45-year-old man — angry over a ball entering his vicinity — used scissors to stab a 15-year-old boy near Crocker Amazon Playground Tuesday, police say.

At 2:18 p.m. Tuesday, the teenager was with friends when one kicked a ball into the middle-aged man’s area. It apparently angered the man enough to stab the 15-year-old with a pair of scissors when he went to retrieve the ball. 

San Francisco police arrived and arrested the suspect while the teenager was transported to the hospital with no life-threatening injuries.
