Chicago police on Tuesday released surveillance images of a man wanted in connection with a double-stabbing in the Loop last week.

Around 11:20 p.m. on July 30th, two people were stabbed and a third was beaten after a group of people became engaged in an argument with the man seen in the photos above and others, police said.

The confrontation in the first block of East Lake Street escalated and the man pulled out a knife, stabbing a 25-year-old man in the chest and a 21-year-old woman in the neck, according to police. A 26-year-old man was also beaten during the incident.

Text on the photos released by police indicates that the images were made at 11:21 p.m. at the State-Randolph Red Line station.

Police did not provide a description Tuesday of the man who stabbed the victims. On the day of the incident, police said he was a black man with a medium build who was wearing blue gym shoes, blue jean shorts, and a t-shirt that is white on the top half and blue on the lower half.

Anyone with information about the suspect may call Area Central detectives at 312-747-8380 or submit a tip anonymously at
