An 18-year-old Chicago man is now charged with attempted robbery after his would-be victim stabbed him repeatedly during a counter-attack in Boystown last weekend, prosecutors said.

Wesley Douglas received three stab wounds to his chest when the victim fought back against him and another unidentified accomplice, police said.

Cops caught up with Douglas around 6 a.m. Saturday when he boarded a southbound #36 Broadway bus at Cornelia and passengers called 911 to report a man bleeding profusely onboard.

An ambulance crew transported Douglas to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center where doctors sewed him back up, and he spent time in the hospital’s intensive care unit before being shipped off to Cook County Jail.

A judge set his bail at $100,000.

Douglas has no previous criminal record in Cook County, according to court records.
