5:43 am
stabbed a person playing "pokemon go" in san jose. the victim says he believes a misunders the search is on this
5:44 am
morning for a person attacked and stabbed on a person playing pokemon go. >> sam, it's a story we've been following since last night on nbcbayarea news at 11:00. kris sanchez is more on what happened. this is another story, unique o one, of this app causing problems. >> reporter: right. but perhaps not in the way that you think. we've seen other story where people were targeted because they were distracted. in this case perhaps not everybody knows what pock pokemon go is and not everyone thoughs what it look likes when people are playing. that led to this violent misunderstanding for one san jose player. this is kris who was back out on the streets playing pokemon go. it's what he was doing one afternoon last week about 3:00 in the afternoon in downtown san jose when he came upon a couple on san carlos second trestreet. he had his phone out in front of him and the couple seemed confused and angry about why.
5:45 am
>> they thought i was recording them. i was like, no, i'm playing a game on my phone. that's all, you know. i kept walking. he was holding a knife. i didn't realize it until later. he got me in the chin and i turned and it cut my face open. >> reporter: now, because pokemon go is so popular there were other players nearby who jumped in to help him stop the bleeding and call for help. an ambulance did take him to the hospital. he got more than 15 stitches in his chin but he says he's going to keep playing pokemon go. san jose police is not blaming the game nor peguidi but remind people to be aware of their surroundings. is suspects are at large. the victim did show us the picture of the attack, we thought it was a bit much for this early hour but if you have the stomach for it go to and you can see more of this story that our reporter also got last night. in san jose, kris sanchez,
5:46 am
"today in the bay." >> thank you very much. expect more complications today from the strike by court clerks in the south bay. santa clara county superior court clerks hit the picket lines yesterday demanding a pay raise. the strike resulted in a slowdown at the county's court facilities. majority of cases are being continued. but if you have been summoned for jury duty you must continue to check whether or not to report. that the point no new talks are scheduled between the court and employees union. a supreme court decision on transgender bathroom use has some local lgbtq leaders concerned. virginia student born a girl but identifies as a boy cannot use the boy's bathroom at least for now. that is the temporary ruling. supreme court handed down yesterday. the school district that the student attends requested the high court to make that ruling. while the school district appeals a lower court ruling which does allow the student to use the boy's bathroom. the lgbt community is concerned
5:47 am
it's a step backwards. >> if we lose this election then we're going to be seeing ruling after ruling like this and it's not going to be a temporary hold. it's doing to be a situation where our lives are gradually chipped away from us and no longer able to function as a full citizen in this country. >> supporters of yesterday's ruling says it protects the basic expectations of bodily privacy, close quotes, for high school students. the high court make take up the issue again later this year. bay area economy, hot job market. still hot. >> go out at get them. scott mcgrew has been going over the numbers. >> they're the latest numbers from the labor department. when we look at the bay area the numbers are very strong. with a lot of jobs very obviously coming from high tech. so keep in mind the national unemployment rate is 5.1% but here in the bay area, san francisco is almost a full percentage lower, 4.2%. san jose at 4.1%. if you're saying, hey, where's
5:48 am
oakland? the government in this case considers oakland to be part of san francisco. in fact, the government thinks much of the east bay down to fremont is part of san francisco. now the angle to these numbers. if you're donald trump you trying to convince voters the economy is lousy, right? statewide, california has an unemployment rate of 5.4%. higher than average. but unlikely to go trump's way. key battleground states employment actually relatively strong. florida, 4.7%. ohio, 5%. pennsylvania is in play. if your campaign is based on saying the economy is bad you're going to do okay in pennsylvania. it's above the national average 5.6%. speaking of jobs. wall street looking ahead to tomorrow when we get the monthly jobs report. keep in mind last month's jobs report was a blowout. nearly 300,000 jobs created. one of the highest numbers we've seen in years. this new number will come at 5:30 our time. obviously this time around as it has in the last couple of months. a political aspect to it. that one definitely went hillary
5:49 am
clinton's way last month. we'll see how it goes this monday. >> you want to see a show? >> yes. >> people in las vegas always a show there. look at this. lighting up the night sky there. not from all the neon there but from nature. light anyone storm played out across the skies over the city. cameras catching it just brampling out across the vegas skyline there. slash is pretty quick but they're so bright lit up the hills and the mountains behind. so the stars shining brathly there in vegas. >> as they always do. >> elvis. >> cirque de soleil. let's get a check of your weather here and a cooldown is in store. >> it's going to be a nice one today and the weekend. getting ready for sunshine and not the sweltering heat that we had last week and to start this week. as we get a live look outside now, we are seeing some low clouds that will be with us for a little while longer. a look at the golden gate bridge. cars making it across just fine without the windshield wipers. we haven't seen the fog and mist
5:50 am
but we may see that here after a little while as the low clouds continue. here's the view from the castro. it is 57 degrees there. and mostly cloudy skies. we generally have some 50s and low 60s as you get this thursday started. our wind direction, a huge factor today because we have quite a few wildfires burning in the area. and as we look at the north bay, the one that is just around the -- lake berryessa area, the winds will be rushing in from the southwest as we go into this evening. for the rest of the bay area, breezy. low clouds moving in tonight. and then we'll also have a gusty wind coming in from the west as we go into the day tomorrow. so as we go through the day planner in oakland, it will be 59 degrees to start out. some upper 60s today with some gusty winds. and mostly sunny skies as we go into this evening. a look at all of the microclimates expect it to top out at 79 in morgan hill. 76 degrees in palo alto and the financial district at 62. maybe even a light jacket needed
5:51 am
there. not so much in fairfield. it will be much more comfortable because yesterday you had the 90s there. we're only expecting it to hit 80 today. hayward, 72 degrees. pleasant on the, high of 87 degrees. so our weather pattern is changing as this high pressure that's giving us the hot weather continues to move away as it weakens. and an area of low pressure moving in from the north will replace that and give us some cooler temperatures as the onshore flow gets much stronger. we'll have morning clouds and afternoon sunshine. especially in san francisco with those highs reaching into the low 60s. mid 60s for both saturday and sunday. it does get a little bit warmer next week. that will also be the trend that we'll see for the inland areas. a little bit of a break with below average temperatures for the rest of this week. into the start of the weekend but you see by sunday those temperatures start to go back up and before you know it we'll have 90s to start out next week. let's head over to mike now. tracking some crashes. have they cleared from fremont? >> they have. all the crashes have cleared from the chp blotter from
5:52 am
fremo fremont. 680, scott creek. off alvarado. approaching 680, may be activity later on, recovery from an earlier crash. look at the speed sensors. we do have a little slowing. this is before you get to the crash which is over on the shoulder at san pablo avenue. we do have slowing just off highway 4. typical pattern as folks head down toward the bay bridge and toll plaza. maze looks great are in san francisco. pretty standard at the bay bridge. halfway mark for the lanes, all lanes at the toll plaza. behind there the cash lanes seeing a break. bring some cash and get a fastrak, faster there. san jose, the build. the little build on the map is right there at 101 and 680. back to you. >> thanks, mike. workers atta hotel and casino once opened by donald trump have learned the hotel will soon close doors for good. >> trump opened the taj mahal in atlantic city back in 1990. it's now owned by investor carl
