Two Stabbed Outside Brown Line Station

Two people were stabbed Thursday afternoon during an argument outside a Chicago Transit Authority Brown Line station in the North Side Ravenswood neighborhood.

An 18-year-old woman and a 20-year-old man were stabbed after they got into an argument with two other people at Western station, on the 4600 block of North Western Ave., police News Affairs Officer Thomas Sweeney said.

The man suffered multiple stab wounds to the upper body and was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in critical condition, Sweeney said.

The woman was stabbed in the arm, and taken to Swedish Covenant Hospital where her condition stabilized, Sweeney said.

The victims and the suspects apparently know each other, though no one is in custody Thursday evening, a police source said.

The man stabbed is affiliated with a gang, according to police.
