He died after being stabbed in the chest when he intervened as a woman attempted to stab a couple on a sidewalk in the 5200 block of North Sheridan around 11:41 p.m., according to police.

Police searched the area for the woman and later staked out the third floor of an apartment building next door to the crime scene, where they believed a suspect might live.

According to a source, officers eventually arrested Monae around 12:30 p.m. at McDonald’s 5130 North Sheridan. She was taken into custody without further incident.
