Man fatally stabbed on CTA Red Line train in Englewood – NBC Chicago

A man was fatally stabbed on a Chicago Transit Authority Red Line train in Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood early Monday, police said.

The man, whose age is unknown, was stabbed in the chest by another man during an argument around 3:05 a.m. inside a Red Line train car in the 200 block of West 63rd Street, authorities said.

The victim ran about a block to the 6300 block of South Yale Avenue, where police and firefighters were called, authorities said. He was taken to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced, police said.

No arrests have been reported and area detectives are investigating.

According to the CTA, Red Line trains are bypassing the 63rd Street station due to police activity.

The knife attack comes three days after a violent attempted robbery on a CTA train early Friday in Lincoln Park left several people stabbed and in critical condition after the five assailants and the victim engaged in a knife fight. Five people were in custody during the incident.
