Man stabbed during attack in River North

Chicago police are investigating after a man was stabbed and assaulted as he walked in River North overnight.

The 32-year-old was in the 400 block of North Clark when a group of men approached him around 3 a.m., CPD said in a brief media statement.

One of the men punched and kicked the victim, causing him to fall to the ground. He suffered a stab wound to his stomach and a head injury during the attack, police said.

CPD said he was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in good condition. No arrests have been made.

The victim walked to a nearby bar for assistance after the attack. Police were dispatched to the scene at 2:45 a.m., about 15 minutes earlier than when CPD’s statement said the assault occurred.
