ROSEMONT, Ill. — Police are searching for a man in connection with a stabbing at a gas station in Rosemont.

Police responded around 6 p.m. Wednesday to the Mobil Gas Station at Higgins Road and River Road after receiving a call regarding a stabbing.

A victim was transported to an area hospital with a stab wound in the abdomen. His condition is unknown at this time.
