CHICAGO — A migrant was stabbed and critically wounded Wednesday night outside a Chicago police station. It happened around 10 p.m. in front of the Near North (18th) District station at 1160 North Larrabee.
Without saying the victim is a migrant, a Chicago police spokesperson said a 25-year-old man was stabbed in the chest and back by an unknown offender in the 1100 block of North Larrabee. He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, initially listed in critical condition, the spokesperson said.
A source familiar with the situation confirmed that the victim is a migrant. They said the offender, who remains at large, is also a migrant.
After being stabbed, the injured man stumbled into the 18th District sally port, a garage-like area where arrestees are transferred into and out of police vehicles.
Detectives continue to investigate the stabbing.
