Chicago Crime

CHICAGO — Police are looking for a woman accused of stabbing people at random on the North Side.

Police said the woman stabbed three victims for “no apparent reason at all.” In a fourth incident, the woman also threatened to shoot a victim for no reason, police said.

Last week, the woman was accused of stabbing another woman inside a Mariano’s store at 3030 N. Broadway. The victim was transported to a local hospital in good condition.

Police did not give the conditions of the other stabbing victims at this time.

A timeline of the incidents is below.

  • 4800 block of North Marine Drive on June 5 at approx. 10:45 am.
  • 1000 block of West Thorndale Avenue on June 5 at approx. 8:45 pm.
  • 4821 N. Broadway Ave. on June 9 at approx. 4:40 pm.
  • 3030 N. Broadway Ave. on June 11 at approx. 4:25 pm.

“It’s scary,” said Ivar Alvarez, who works a few feet away from where one of the suspects was stabbed. “I remember growing up over here and it’s pretty safe. Now, we are hearing about all this crazy stuff, especially coming over here working. I walk to get lunch and stuff. That’s kind of insane.” 

The woman is described as African American, 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 8 inches and was wearing a pink top in three of the incidents. Anyone with information can leave an anonymous tip at cpdtip.com.
