Chicago — Attempted murder charges have been filed against a man who stabbed another man during a confrontation at the CTA’s Roosevelt station yesterday, according to Chicago police.
Vidal Herazo, 22, is scheduled to appear for a bond hearing this afternoon. Officials will provide more information about Herazo and the allegations against him during the hearing.
In a media statement, Chicago police said Herazo stabbed and seriously injured a 28-year-old man at the station around 12:26 a.m.
CPD previously said the men were “engaged in a physical confrontation” when one man “produced a sharp object and swung it making contact with the victim’s arm.”
Officers arrested Herazo nearby while other cops applied a tourniquet to slow the victim’s blood loss, police said. The victim was initially listed in fair condition at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
Chicago police have arrested Herazo eight other times since May 2019 for domestic batteries, violating an order of protection, and assault with a deadly weapon. The outcomes of those cases were not immediately available.
CWBChicago will post a full update after Herazo appears in court.
