A 50-year-old man suffered a “very superficial wound” during an altercation onboard a Red Line train at Addison this morning.
Witnesses told police that two apparently homeless men began arguing on the train and one of them took out a small knife and stabbed the other in the hip.
Cops took the 23-year-old armed man into custody after a nerve-wracking foot chase along the electrified elevated tracks.
But the 50-year-old victim declined all offers of service—wanting nothing to do with the police or the ambulance crew who were on-scene to help him, police said.
Charges against the younger man are pending.
