Uptown Gangbanger Charged In North Ave Beach Stabbing

A member of Uptown’s Gangster Disciple street gang faction is charged with Tuesday evening’s knife attack at North Avenue Beach, police said.

35-year-old Pablo Sosa is accused of attempted first-degree murder and aggravated battery-deadly weapon. Bail is set at $750,000.

Sosa met the 25-year-old victim for the first time at the beach about an hour before the stabbing unfolded.

Witnesses told police that they advised the soon-to-be-victim that Sosa was behaving erratically and to be careful with him, prosecutors said.

Around 6:15 p.m., Sosa approached the victim, and a fistfight broke out. Sosa soon pulled out two knives and used them to stab the other man nine times, police said.

Bystanders and police caught up with Sosa as he tried to flee the scene on his bike. One man hit and stabbed Sosa with a broken bottle.

The victim remains in serious condition at Northwestern Memorial Hospital with a punctured lung and other injuries.

Sosa also remains hospitalized at Northwestern with stab wounds.

Shortly after the attack, a police official said the incident was domestic related, but prosecutors said today that Sosa did not know the victim.

CWBChicago has learned that Sosa was, in fact, charged in a domestic incident recently. Prosecutors agreed to drop charges when the victim became uncooperative, according to court records.

On March 3, police went to the West Side home of Sosa’s longtime girlfriend after the woman’s daughter called 911 and said that Sosa was being abusive and she feared for her mother’s safety, according to court records.

Cops said no one would open the door when they arrived, yet they could hear screams and noises coming from inside as Sosa reportedly yelled “She’s fine! She’s fine!” The fire department was called to force the door open for officers.

Inside, the police found blood stains on bedsheets as well as on Sosa. The 51-year-old girlfriend admitted that Sosa threw her onto the bed and held her face in the mattress, causing severe neck and head pain, police said.

A witness stated that they often heard screams coming from the apartment and Sosa does not let his girlfriend leave the house, according to police.

During a court hearing in late May, the woman told prosecutors that she did not want to testify in the case. Prosecutors agreed to drop the single charge of domestic battery that Sosa faced.

  2. Perfect! Exactly what I was looking for....."met him on the beach an hour before".

    This was also reported as "domestic" just like the abundance of violent crime on Halsted Street has been for years.

  3. Sorry, but the trash has taken up the lakefront. Rahm needs to just keep pissing away OUR tax dollars on bike lanes, planters and other crap instead of really beefing up the CPD. You reap what you sow, Mr. 9 1/2 fingers.

  4. Just goes to show that people who refuse to follow through with charges against those that commit crimes against them are partially responsible for future victims.

    1. Sad part is that his girlfriend is probably terrified to go through with charges knowing that he will serve some fraction of an already too short sentence, and then come right back to her.

  5. The bottle would have been a more effective weapon if it were intact rather than broken. Don't believe everything you see in movies.

  7. Do you realize how many court dates a victim must make until a conviction or a case dismissal? I don't think it's reasonable to expect out of towners to show up for every court date.

    1. Exactly. You'd think in this day and age they could do it be Skype or Microsoft Office or Word Perfect or whatever.

  8. Rahm has to go. I wonder if anyone will oppose him.
    There are already 5 or more democrats running against Rauner.
    Where are Rahm's opponents? Perhaps a Republican opponent.

    1. The real election is the primary. With stupid, brash creatures like Trump, Pence, McConnell, and Ryan running the GOP, there isn't a chance in hell a Republican could win a mayor's race in Chicago, of all places. They are about to lose a GOP House seat in suburban Atlanta.

    2. Where is our Bloomberg of Rudy??

    3. Aren't tough-on-crime republicans like Giulinani and Bloomberg responsible for cleaning up New York and bringing the murder rate down to 20 pct of its former level? Aren't soft on crimes democrats responsible for murder surges in Chicago, Baltimore, St Louis, Newark and Cleveland?
