2 men stabbed, 1 fatally, on Loop CTA platform

Police are conducting a death investigation after two men were stabbed at the Clark-Lake CTA station Wednesday evening and one of them died.

Based on preliminary information, a man stabbed a 30-year-old man in the back during an argument on the outdoor platform that serves Orange Line and other trains around 7:35 p.m. The 30-year-old then grabbed the assailant’s knife away and stabbed the attacker in the neck, police said.

The 30-year-old was taken to Rush Hospital in good condition. But the man who apparently stabbed him died at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

Authorities have not identified the deceased man or released his age. Area Three detectives are handling the case.
