Woman Stabbed, Wounded In Edgewater

CHICAGO (CBS) — A woman was stabbed overnight in the Edgewater neighborhood.

The victim, whose age was not released, was stabbed by someone she knew around 10 p.m. Tuesday in the 6000 block of North Kenmore Avenue, police said.

She was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where she was reported in stable condition, he said.

The suspect, a man, is not in police custody as of early Wednesday, Gaines said. He did not have further details on the circumstances of the incident or the woman’s injuries.

The stabbing happened in the Winthrop-Kenmore corridor, which runs from the Loyola University Lake Shore campus south into the Uptown neighborhood. While conditions on the two parallel streets have improved dramatically in recent decades, the area has long struggled with crime, poverty and low-quality housing.

Belmont Area police detectives are investigating the stabbing.
