Police are trying to identify a woman who they say stabbed a CTA bus passenger in the back of the head on Michigan Avenue this week.

CTA surveillance images released today show the woman who stabbed a female passenger aboard the northbound bus in the 600 block of North Michigan around 10:15 p.m. on Easter Sunday, police said.

The suspect had an object inside of a glove that caused a “minor cut” to the victim, according to information previously released by police. The victim did not know the suspect and the two did not appear to have any interaction before the stabbing, police said.

After stabbing the woman, the suspect exited the bus and walked north on Michigan Avenue. Police today described her as being in her 30’s with a heavy build. She was wearing a brown hat, blue scarf, and black coat.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call Area Central detectives at (312) 747-8380.
