Man stabbed after argument with woman on CTA Red Line platform – NBC Chicago

A man was stabbed during an argument on a North Side CTA Red Line platform on Tuesday evening.

The man, 37, was arguing with a woman on the train when they came out onto the Fullerton station platform and the woman stabbed him twice in the neck around 10.30pm, police said.

He was taken to Masonic Medical Center in Illinois in serious condition, police said.

No one was in custody.

Earlier Tuesday, a man was robbed from a CTA Red Line train on the Near North Side.

The 40-year-old man was boarding the train around 3:30 a.m. in the 1500 block of North Clybourn Avenue when someone took his bag, police said. The thief fled with the bag but was later apprehended, police said.

On Monday, a 17-year-old boy was injured in a shootout with another person on Monday near a CTA Red Line stop in Greater Grand Crossing on the South Side. The boy and another person were in the first block of West 79th Street when they opened fire on each other, police said.

Last weekend, in the same block, Diunte Moon, 29, was shot while driving a Red Line train.

The recent spate of attacks comes shortly after police and transit officials announced additional plans to tighten security on L trains and the subway.

The Sun-Times reported last week that the number of violent crimes on the L and buses has jumped to a level not seen in more than a decade. By July 19, 488 attacks had been reported on the transit system – the most since 533 during the same period in 2011.
