(KSL News) -- A bad night for crime on the streets of Salt Lake City. Police last night responded to three attacks within an hour.

The first happened about 11:30. A man and woman were crossing the street at 600 East and 3rd South when three men began chasing them. One of them caught up with the woman, and stabbed her in the shoulder. She was taken to the hospital.

Police have made no arrests in that incident.

Minutes later officers were called to "Cards, Chips and More", a poker supply store downtown. The owner says two men in a red SUV followed him into the back parking lot of his store, pulled out a gun and robbed him.

The man was not injured. Those suspects, too, still at large.

Soon after that police were called to West Temple where a man said someone robbed him as he left a bar. He said the robber took his wallet and ran.

Police do not believe the crimes are related.

Police also responded to an auto-pedestrian accident in downtown Salt Lake City overnight.

Witnesses say a 45-year old man was jaywalking at 135 West and 2nd South and stepped right in front of a pickup truck.

Police say the man sustained serious, but not life- threatening injuries. He was taken to LDS Hospital. No one else was hurt.
