CHICAGO — A 30-year-old bicyclist was stabbed Monday afternoon on the 606 trail in Humboldt Park.
At around 12:30 p.m., police were dispatched to the 3200 block of West Bloomingdale Avenue on the report of a stabbing.
Police said a 30-year-old man was on his bike when an unknown suspect knocked the victim over by kicking the bike.
Police said the suspect then jumped on top of the man and struck the victim with an unknown object being fleeing eastbound. The bicyclist suffered a stab wound to the right shoulder and was transported to Mount Sinai Hospital in stable condition.
While not a hub of criminal activity, the trail has seen its share of crime.
In May of 2019, Alejandro Aguado, 22, of Portage, was shot and killed while walking with two friends. Three men approached, demanded to know if the three were in a gang, and then opened fire.
The father of two girls died at the hospital.
Walkers told WGN Monday night that they’d like to see more of a police presence at all times during the year.
Area North detectives are investigating.
