SAN FRANCISCO – A San Francisco police officer and a person who was allegedly making threats with a knife were taken to a hospital on Friday as officers responded to McCoppin and Valencia streets. 

The officer’s injuries are said to be non-life threatening.  The suspect with the knife was taken to the hospital for medical evaluation. 

The police department negotiated with the individual who had apparently barricaded inside a vehicle. 

Police said they responded to the first block of McCoppin Street at 12:36 p.m. on the report of the knife threats. Police said officers arrived and made contact with the individual at Valencia and McCoppin. 

The suspect was eventually taken into custody at around 5:15 p.m. 

It is not clear how the officer and the suspect were injured.
