A man was stabbed in the chest during a fight in Boystown early Thursday. The offender, described by a friend of the victim as “some random white dude,” is in custody.

Witnesses reported seeing a group of people fighting in a strip mall parking lot near Broadway and Waveland at 1:20 a.m.  Officers arrived in time to take the assailant into custody outside of a nearby convenience store.

The victim–age 21 or 22, according to conflicting sources–was admitted to Illinois Masonic Medical Center with two stab wounds in the mid-chest area and is expected to be released on Saturday. His attacker was taken to Thorek Hospital with minor injuries.

Another member of the group was detained on an outstanding warrant from DuPage County.

Chicago police did not yet have information about charges. We will update this story when court information is secured.
