15-year-old stabbed a man on the Red Line, Chicago police say

CTA North Clybourn sign door framed

CHICAGO — A 15-year-old boy has been charged with stabbing a man on a Red Line train in Lincoln Park last month, according to Chicago police.

It occurred on a northbound train at the North-Clybourn station around 7:45 p.m. on November 19. Witnesses reported that a group of about six teenagers had attacked and stabbed a man on the train, then fled into the North-Clybourn station.

The victim, 38, was seriously injured in the attack, according to CPD.

All of the teens slipped away, but Chicago police arrested the 15-year-old yesterday in the 4800 block of North Lincoln Avenue. He is charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. No further information is available about him because he is a juvenile.

The Chicago Police Department claimed this week that violent crime is down 3% this year on the CTA.
