3 injured in separate stabbing attacks in Lakeview

Three men were injured in separate attacks on Chicago’s North Side early Sunday morning.

The first, on occurred on Sheridan Rd near Pine Grove in Lakeview.  A man in his 30s was stabbed in the back of the head and found lying on the sidewalk just after 2 a.m. Sunday.

The man was brought to the hospital in critical condition.  Police don’t know what lead up to the attack.

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.
