Man Stabbed in His Sleep

  • Wake up! You've been stabbed.

There are heavy sleepers, and then there are those sleepers who can snooze right through an attempted murder

Such is the case with one man who was sleeping so soundly that he never felt someone stab him in the chest.

Who knows what time the crime happened, but police say the 60-year-old man woke up at about 4 a.m. on the 400 block of Turk Street to discover the puncture wound to his chest.

The rested but injured man was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police have very little information to give us about the incident, which isn't hard to believe considering the victim was not awake when it happened.

    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
