Stabbing Victim Sees Attacker On Another Bus

CHICAGO (STMW) — Police are trying to find a woman armed with a kitchen knife, who stabbed two people on a CTA bus before fleeing in the Bronzeville neighborhood about a week ago.

About 1 p.m. on March 3, the suspect and a woman began arguing for an unidentified reason on a CTA bus at 3901 S. Cottage Grove Ave., according to Wentworth District police Lt. Shawn Joyce.

The suspect then pulled out a kitchen knife and stabbed the woman in the right forearm, and began to try to leave the bus.

On her way out, the suspect stabbed another person, a man who was apparently in her way. He suffered a stab wound to the right thigh and the arm and the female suspect fled with the knife westbound after the attacks, Joyce said.

Both victims were taken to Mercy Hospital and Medical Center with non life-threatening injures and they have been discharged, the lieutenant said.

The woman stabbed became frightened Wednesday afternoon when she saw the suspect who stabbed her while aboard another CTA bus near the intersection of 35th Street and Indiana Avenue, according to Joyce.

The police were called but the suspect escaped again. Police believe she was the same person who allegedly stabbed the two on March 3, Joyce said.

The suspect is described as an African-American woman between the ages of 17 and 20 with blonde hair, who is about 5-foot-6, and 120 pounds. On Mar. 3, she was wearing blue jeans with a white belt, a black, waist-length jacket and boots.

The suspect did not rob the victims and Joyce said police are stepping up their patrols into the area, and checking buses.

Police continue to seek her and as of Friday, she has not been apprehended. CTA officials were being cooperative with police, and they have video surveillance of the incident.

    I agree with Matt, it’s not every day you see someone with that description.

    • USCitizen

      I don’t agree or disagree with Matt, because someone has removed his comment. To anyone reporting comments, STOP!!!!!!! Everyone has the right to be heard. This censoring of comments has got to stop.

      • LittleOldLady

        This seems to be a real problem on this message board. I find comments are missing quite frequently. CBS should remove the option to report comments. There are too many self-centered people who think their opinions are the only ones relevant. I have never reported a comment, even when I disagree with it. If someone doesn’t like the opinions of others, then reply to it, don’t report it!!!!!

  • Tim

    What the hell does it mean? “Your comment is awaiting moderation”? Is that the same thing as cencorship?

    • SAM

      It seems CBS is censoring comments, or some a$$hole is reporting them.Either way, it is wrong.

  • spot5311

    Matt, You should either be in school learning something (how not to be a racist would be nice and then spelling) or at work rather than spewing disgusting comments such as the one above.

    • Cuzisaidso

      He can’t help it. Some people only have courage behind a computer. Coward….

      It’s really embarrassing to read….

  • Cuzisaidso

    Just like it’s not everyday you see a white person with full lips and dark skin, but hey…it’s being done. Every race emulates the other. We take something from each other……smdh @ these comments.

    • Montel

      Right on Cuz. I’m with you. Everyone takes something from each other. If some nasty-a$$ black nig ho wants to wear white people’s hair, that is her right. Every race emulates the other. Not everyone in the world can be white. Someone has to make up the bottom of the barrel.

      • cuzisaidso

        You are absolutely right Montel. And your mom should have just swallowed so you wouldn’t be here to talk the mess you do!!!!

      • Disgusted

        @Cuz What the hell is the matter with you? You should feel ashamed for making a comment like that. Wash out your mouth!

      • Cuzisaidso

        @ Disgusted Wth is wrong with YOU? I should be ashamed of what I commented, but what about what he/she wrote right above me? No, I am not ashamed. I wanted to say worse. He made his statement he wanted and I made mine. Who are you supposed to be? The online etiquette police? Mind your business and move on to the next comment and stfu. Self-righteous bobble head!

  • A short story

    It is so sad, the blonde Pygmy is loose again.

  • Connie

    Why is everyone picking on Matt? What did he say?

    • Craig

      He didn’t say anything that wasn’t true.

  • Krystal

    @ Tyrone you asre as IGNORANT as they come! You can only say those types of things in a comment box, because you wouldn’t have the courage to say that in a African American face! These comments are really sick! It just lets you know what really ppl think! The world is SOO RACIST!!!

    • Disgusted

      Who the hell reported Tyrone’s comment? Please explain your sorry self. Don’t hide behind a message board. Let’s hear it.

      • Cuzisaidso

        Since you want to come to other poster’s rescue, Montel’s mom should have swallowed and yours should have spit you out. Is that better? Pull the stick out……

  • Krystal

    These comments are REALLY SAD!!!! IHope ppl are not teaching there children STUPID things such as being RACIST! ok, because she had on a blonde wig that makes her a want to be “white” person? So what is it when you have “white” ppl out her imitating what African American ppl do in there culture? TRASH!?

    • Curious

      African? How many black people really came from Africa? Why aren’t they just called black Americans?

      • cuzisaidso

        How many Americans are truly Americans. Every race came from somewhere else. America was built on people from other countries backs….Irish, Blacks, Indians, Chinese, etc. Every race has helped build this country and has made countributions to what we call America!

      • Benji

        Or black nigs, HaHaHaHaHaHaHa!!!

    • Paul

      Krystal, what about Angola? Or Somalia? Would you like moving there? I promise no racism there, no white, no KKK, just beatiful black people around.

      • A. Saxon

        Yeah, Somalia. What a nice country. Street gangs, pirates, black criminals aplenty. A perfect example of what happens when blacks are able to run things their way.
