Police are looking for an attacker who stabbed a man during a robbery on a Lincoln Square fast-food restaurant parking lot Saturday afternoon. The assailant allegedly chased after the victim with a knife when he ran to get help.
It started around 2:20 p.m. when the robber tried to take a bag out of the victim’s car on the parking lot of Burger King, 2449 West Lawrence, according to a CPD report.
He then stabbed the 40-year-old Evanston resident in the hand, according to Officer Hector Alfaro, a CPD spokesperson. The victim told police he believed the attack was also a carjacking attempt.
According to a CPD report, the victim ran into a nearby pizza restaurant for help. But he went back out and ran away when the attacker approached with a knife in his hand.
The offender is described as a White male in his 50’s who wore a skull cap. He fled the area in a white SUV, according to Alfaro.
An ambulance took the victim to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston in fair condition.
