2 stabbed during fight outside Marina City, police say

Two men suffered stab wounds during a fight on the Marina City complex Saturday morning. Police arrested one of the men to face charges.

Officers responded to the famed residential and entertainment development at 333 North Dearborn shortly after 11 a.m. upon receiving calls of two men fighting near a valet area. In addition to its iconic “corn cob” residential towers, Marina City is also home to the House of Blues and Hotel Chicago.

Ambulances transported both men to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where their conditions stabilized. Police said the offender received stab wounds to his head and thigh while the victim was stabbed in his head and back.

Area Three detectives are handling the investigation. CWB will post an update if prosecutors approve charges.
