A man spent his Saturday morning assisting homeless people in River North, by providing rides and allowing them to get cleaned up, until a passenger stabbed him while driving, according to police.
The victim, 39, picked up a 32-year-old man in the 200 block of E. Hubbard Street around 8 a.m.
Officials said when the victim exited the vehicle, the suspect took over and crashed as the victim held onto the side of the car.
The victim suffered lacerations to his hand, authorities said, and refused to press charges.
Although the suspect fled the scene, he was apprehended shortly and placed in custody with charges of knife and reckless conduct.
No other details were immediately provided.
