Man recovering after being stabbed in River North, police say

Police are investigating after a 32-year-old man was found with multiple stab wounds in the Loop on Tuesday morning.

The victim told police he was at a restaurant on the 600 block of North Clark when a man approached him, began yelling, and stabbed him several times with a knife around 5 a.m. He said he ran all the way to 35 East Wacker Drive after being stabbed to call for help.

Police met with the man, who had stab wounds to his back, arm, and hip, at a convenience store on the corner of Wacker and Wabash. An ambulance took him to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in fair condition.

Investigators searched the parking lot of the former “Rock & Roll McDonalds” and the Hard Rock Cafe, both of which are on the 600 block of North Clark, but they found no evidence of a stabbing, according to a CPD report.

Police said the victim described the attacker as a heavyset Black male wearing a blue, black, and white jacket. He was last seen running north.

Area Three detectives are handling the investigation.
