Man stabbed during robbery in Lincoln Park

CHICAGO — Two robbers stabbed a man after mugging him in Lincoln Park on Friday night, Chicago police said.

The 32-year-old victim was in the 2600 block of North Racine when the pair approached him around 8:59 p.m., according to a CPD spokesperson.

One offender stabbed the victim in the abdomen after the robbery, and both robbers fled on foot, police said.

EMS transported the victim to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center. The CPD spokesperson said he was in good condition.

Officers at the robbery scene radioed descriptions of the two suspects: a tall, dark-complected Hispanic man who wore a gray hoodie and a second lighter-complected Hispanic man. They were last seen heading west on Schubert Avenue after the crime.

Police were trying to determine if the victim, who only speaks Spanish and carries an Ecuadorian ID, was a migrant.
