Police have released images of two people they want to identify in connection with a double stabbing that took place in the Loop earlier this month.

The man and woman reportedly approached a group and engaged them in conversation on the 100 block of East Washington around 11:25 p.m. on July 6th. Two of the victims were stabbed, and the third was punched in the face when a dispute broke out, and the offenders fled the scene, police said.

According to previous police statements, the victims were waiting for a ride-hail car near the northeast corner of Wabash and Washington when another vehicle drove up with a man and woman inside. The offenders stepped out of their car and the situation escalated, police said.

Police said the male offender stabbed a three-month pregnant 27-year-old in the stomach. A 26-year-old man in the group was stabbed twice in the abdomen. The offenders returned to their car and drove away eastbound on Washington, police said.

Anyone with information about the individuals may contact Area Central detectives at 312-747-8380 regarding case JC337989.
