Chicago — A woman was stabbed to death on a Loop CTA platform Saturday morning, Chicago police said. Officers have identified a suspect, but he remains at large.
The 26-year-old woman was standing on the Adams-Wabash platform, 201 South Wabash, when a man stabbed her around 1:26 a.m., according to a CPD media statement. She made her way down the stairs and collapsed in the street outside Miller’s Pub, 134 South Wabash, moments later. People in the area attended to the woman until first responders arrived.
Paramedics took her to Stoger Hospital, where she died from her injuries, which included stab wounds to her neck, torso, and arm. She is the first person killed in the Loop this year.
Surveillance video showed the man following the woman from street level up to the platform, where he attacked her, said an officer who reviewed the footage. The officer described the man as a Hispanic man with very short hair, wearing a shiny puffy coat, a gray sweatshirt underneath, jeans, and black and white gym shoes.
In radio transmissions, other officers identified a 30-year-old Hispanic man by name as the suspect. So far, police have not announced any arrests.
