    A homeless man got his revenge against two men harassing him on a downtown CTA “L” platform, according to police.
    The homeless man allegedly stabbed the men after warning them to leave him alone at the Jackson stop on the Red Line around 2 a.m. Tuesday, according to the Chicago Tribune.

    The men were bothering others on the platform before the stabbing, police said. 
    The homeless man’s knife pierced one man’s arm, sending him to Northwestern Memorial Hospital. The other man received treatment on the scene for a finger injury.
    The homeless man ran away. Chicago Police are now looking for him. 
    No charges are expected against the two men, the paper reports.
