A man was found with a stab wound to the back of his head early this morning on the North Side in the city's Lakeview neighborhood.
About 2:15 a.m., police were called to the 700 block of West Sheridan Road after receiving a report of a man lying on the sidewalk, said Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Michael Sullivan.
The man, believed to be in his 30s, had a stab wound to the back of his head, Sullivan said.
The man was taken in critical condition to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center.
The circumstances leading up to the stabbing were unknown because the man was being uncooperative with police, Sullivan said.
Then, around 5 a.m. near the Belmont CTA station, a large group of people attacked two men, ages 21 and 25, after one of the victim’s cell phones was taken.
Police say both men were hit with bottles. The group chased at least one of them into the alley and stabbed him in the face.
They were taken to the hospital in serious condition, while police took three people into custody.
Residents have seen similar attacks in the area, which is just steps away from Chicago’s Boystown neighborhood, in the past.
Last year, several incidents happened after the Pride Parade including a police officer being injured during an arrest and two stabbings on Belmont. With the parade still to come next sunday, some say have fun, but be cautious.
It’s a darkened cloud during a weekend usually reserved for celebrating gay pride in the Windy City.Copyright © 2015, CT Now
