A 26-year-old man is hospitalized after being stabbed in the left abdomen at the Belmont Red Line early Sunday.

Police were called to the station at 945 W. Belmont around 3:45AM by witnesses who said that the victim seemed to have been attacked at random.

The victim was found on the platform and police said a crime scene had been found inside a train, which was held at the station for evidence technicians.

Witnesses describe the offender as a very skinny black man dressed as a woman with gold and blonde hair. He stands about 5’8” tall and wore leopard pants.

An ambulance transported the victim to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where his condition was stabilized, police said.
