Men Stabbed At North Avenue Beach Tonight

A man was stabbed six times along the bike path at North Avenue Beach this evening. An offender, also stabbed, is in custody.

The two were near the North Avenue pedestrian bridge when the offender pulled out a knife around 6:15 p.m.

Police said the 25-year-old victim was stabbed six times in the chest. He is in serious condition at Northwestern Memorial Medical Center.

Cops were on-scene almost immediately, and they quickly took the offender into custody as he tried to escape on a bicycle, a witness said.

The offender, 35, received slash wounds when the victim fought back with a broken bottle, according to a witness. He was reported in good condition at Northwestern.

  2. So I'm riding along the lakefront, first bike ride of summer, thinking "man, Chicago is beautiful." Then I see a bunch of cops, taped off area, and a news van from every station. Oh chicago...

    1. ^ "Nothing to worry about here people. Just mind your bidness and move along" (akin to "just gang related").

  4. It's hard to blame knife attacks on guns but the Democrats will find a way.

  5. Is there any part of this cesspool where people aren't being shot, stabbed, strangled, bludgeoned?

  6. Lil Kim will drop the charges to trespassing. Then, quietly will drop the charges completely. Most likely will recommend the city offer a settlement to the slasher and that the arresting officers be fired.

    1. I had to laugh out loud at your comment! It's so preposterous, however it's keeping step with Kimmie's agenda to give all thugs a pass and demonize the police. Good job!
