A person was stabbed in West Berkeley shortly before 9 p.m., police say, but is expected to survive.
Berkeley Police watch commander Lt. Mike Durbin said officers responded to the stabbing, at Gilman Street and San Pablo Avenue, and remain on the scene taking witness statements and continuing to investigate.
The victim was taken to a local hospital by paramedics but is in stable condition and expected to survive, he said.
Durbin said there is no reason to think the stabbing was related in any way to recent incidents of gun violence in South Berkeley.
No one is in custody at this time and a description of the assailant was not immediately available.
