CHICAGO — A group of people beat and stabbed a man and woman in the Loop early Saturday, Chicago police said. Both victims were seriously injured.
In a brief media statement, CPD stated that the offenders stabbed a 29-year-old woman and a man of unknown age during an altercation in the 800 block of South Plymouth Court at around 4:11 a.m.
Officers at the scene said about eight people known to hang out near the Harold Washington Library and a nearby Red Line station are responsible for the attack, but no arrests have been made.
The police seemed to be focusing their attention on a staircase and the lobby of a condominium building on the block.
The woman was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where she underwent surgery for stab wounds on her head and neck. The nature of the man’s injuries is not known, but CPD said both victims were in critical condition.
