Woman stabbed cab driver on the Mag Mile, police say

CHICAGO — A woman remains at large after she stabbed a cab driver in the head on the Magnificent Mile overnight.

The cabbie was giving the woman a ride when she became angry and physically attacked him in the 600 block of North Michigan around 12:37 a.m., police said. He tried to push the woman away, but she pulled out a sharp object and “made contact with the victim’s head,” according to a CPD media statement.

She fled on foot and has not been located.

Police said the victim was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in good condition with a laceration on his head.

CPD did not release a description of the woman.
