Second stabbing in two nights for Occupy San Francisco, and in the very same spot.

Via:

A 27-year-old Occupy protester was stabbed Monday night outside the Federal Reserve Bank in San Francisco, one day after another activist was stabbed in the same spot, police and demonstrators said Tuesday.

The latest victim was stabbed once in the neck around 11:40 p.m. after a confrontation with a man who was unaffiliated with the Occupy camp, protesters said.

The attacker approached campers and began screaming about a conspiracy theory involving the World Trade Center, said Nick Shaw, 32, an Occupy protester.

The victim, whom fellow campers knew only as "Jimbo," chased him down the steps to the Embarcadero BART and Muni Metro station, Shaw said. The man turned and stabbed him.

The stabbing victim was transported to an area hospital, and is expected to survive his injuries. The previous night's stabbing victim, 28-year-old Brian "Boston" Reid, an Occupier who had been with the camp since its incarnation last fall was taken to the hospital with a knife wound to the chest and is also expected to survive.

One Occupy protester, Nick Shaw said "We used to have a guard to watch for cops, but now we have to have a guard watch for crazy people, too."
