Man Stabbed In Neck Near Magnificent Mile

CHICAGO (CBS) — A man is recovering the day after he was stabbed in broad daylight on the Near North Side, less than a block from the Magnificent Mile.

At 5 p.m. Wednesday, the man was stabbed near Chicago Avenue and Rush Street, police said.

He suffered an apparent stab wound to the neck and was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in serious condition, police said.

    Good place to get stabbed, a mere couple of blocks from one of the best hospitals in the country

  • Chivi

    Look for the criminal in lower Wacker Drive or the mission located just south of Canal and Roosevelt.

    If they have a picture, lets see it. How can the public help with no description? Someone may recognize him and help catch him quickly. Whoever makes these decisions isn’t thinking.

    @Chivi don’t have to go that far . Just head over to Mc Donald near the entrance of chicago redline station or the YMCA in Chicago ave

    • Gerald Spencer

      That is close, yes, that McDonald and the YMCA 1/2 blocks to the west of that McDonald. The denizen of that neighborhood share housing at the Mark Twain Hotel at 1200 North Clark and 100 West Division.

    I think this is just terrible. This is an outrage! We need to have better “knife control” here in the City of Chicago. I do not understand why Mayor Daley doesn’t outlaw all knives and keep them from coming into the Chicagoland area.

    • Mr. Honesty

      your an idiot, an this comment proves it….

  • ArchaicNuisance

    Mr. Justice – I love it!!! They should restrict hammer-possession as well, because some kid hit his friend with one while building a go-cart in Bronzeville. The city isn’t safe until all tools have been banned in case unsafe people use them wrong! Tool Control!

  • Don't Be A Fool Turn In Your Tools

    If we outlaw tools, only outlaw carpenters will have tools.

  • Mr. Justice

    @ Mr. Honesty, it appears you are the idiot as everyone else understood. My comments are called sarcasm. You see, many of us are sick and tired of puking liberals who want “gun control” when in reality what they are screaming for is “control” period. No, we are not going to give up our guns. Matter of fact, many of us are pushing for Conceal Carry here in the communist state of Illinois. You see, 48 other states have Conceal Carry and Wisconsin actually has open carry. So, Mr. Honesty, the next time you want to spew some of your verbal vomit, try it on someone who is meek and mild. Because you picked the wrong guy to try and intimidate.

    Thank you to the rest of you for your words of humor.
