Man stabbed twice at Monroe Street Blue Line station downtown

CHICAGO (CBS) — A man was stabbed twice at the Monroe Street Blue Line station in the heart of downtown Chicago.

As CBS 2’S Sabrina Franza reported, witnesses said the man ran up the stairs from the Chicago Transit Authority subway station onto Dearborn Street and then across the street to the Chase Tower, 10 S. Dearborn St.

Witnesses said the man’s entire back was injured, and he went into the office skyscraper in search of help.

“We were sitting here and we saw a man come up the subway stairs, and he went across the street, and I saw a blood trail behind him and the back of him was covered in blood,” one woman said, “and then he went into the Chase Building and the police came and the ambulance came.”

Dearborn Street was closed at the scene at the height of the afternoon rush hour. Portions of the area were still roped off with crime scene tape as of 5 p.m.

The man was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in an unknown condition.

The CTA Blue Line was suspended in both directions between the Grand and UIC-Halsted stops following the stabbing. Trains are only running between O’Hare and Grand and between UIC-Halsted and Forest Park.
