Two people were stabbed Tuesday afternoon during an altercation near the Argyle Red Line station in Uptown, police said. No one is in custody.

According to a CPD spokesperson, the incident began when a 33-year-old man got into an argument with another man on the 1100 block of West Argyle. The other man left the area, then returned with a knife and stabbed the victim in his head and shoulder around 2:40 p.m., according to police.

Then, a 26-year-old woman who intervened in the attack was stabbed in her head and left tricep, the spokesperson said.

Police draped crime scene tape across the entrance to an alley where the attack apparently unfolded.

The male victim is in critical condition at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center. The woman was also transported to Masonic for treatment. Her condition was described as “stable.”

Police did not offer a description of the offender. Area 3 detectives are investigating.
