Man stabbed during “argument” on Jackson Red Line platform, police say

A 39-year-old man is in good condition after he was stabbed during an argument on the Jackson Red Line platform during the Tuesday evening rush hour, police said.

Citing preliminary information that may change, CPD said a verbal dispute between the injured man and another man escalated and the victim received a single stab wound to his right hip shortly after 6 p.m.

Police had a vague description of the offender who may have slipped through a CTA pedestrian tunnel and then boarded a northbound Blue Line train.

The victim is being treated at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
