CHICAGO — A knife-wielding man knocked a bicyclist to the ground on The 606 Monday afternoon before stabbing him, police said.
The cyclist was stabbed in the shoulder and is being treated for his injuries.
It happened at 12:30 p.m. Monday when a 30-year-old man was riding his bike on the trail. A man came up to him, kicked his bike and knocked him over in the 3200 block of West Bloomingdale Avenue, police said.
The attacker jumped on top of the man, stabbing him and then running away, police said. He was last seen going east.
The 30-year-old was stabbed in his upper right shoulder and was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where his condition was not available but he was listed as “stable,” police said.
An investigation was ongoing.
Joggers continued to use the trail, though officers had the scene of the stabbing temporarily blocked off.
