Attempted murder charges have been filed in connection with last Tuesday’s stabbing on a North Center street.
18-year-old Emanuel Smith of West Ridge repeatedly stabbed a 19-year-old acquaintance during a fight that spilled into the traffic lanes at 4200 North Lincoln around 3 p.m., prosecutors said.
He’s charged with attempted first-degree murder; aggravated battery-deadly weapon; and aggravated battery-great bodily harm. Bail is set at $50,000.
Police said the victim suffered multiple stab wounds to his chest and a slashed face. He was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in serious condition.
The fight erupted outside of the Thresholds service agency and a physical therapy clinic. Officers arrived in time to take Smith into custody at the scene, officers said.
