CHICAGO — A convicted felon has been charged in a stabbing that seriously injured a woman at a CTA Red Line station over the weekend.

Ricky McMahon, 32, is expected to appear in court Monday for a first-degree attempted murder charge in the Saturday attack at 95th Street Station.

Police said around 7 a.m. Saturday, the 25-year-old woman was stabbed in the back, wrist and legs.

Witnesses alerted police, who then chased McMahon and caught him at a nearby bus shelter.

He was arrested and police recovered the knife he was holding.
