Update: Chief of Detectives Brendan Deenihan said video footage reviewed by investigators suggest the man was with a group who threatened or tried to rob someone else on the train.

CHICAGO — A man has died after being stabbed during an altercation on a Red Line train near the 63rd Street Station in the Englewood neighborhood this morning, authorities said.
The stabbing occurred shortly after 3:00 a.m. Monday on a Chicago Transit Authority Red Line train on the city's South Side near the 200 block of West 63rd Street, police said.
The victim was able to run away to approximately the 6300 block of South Yale Avenue. He suffered stab wounds to his chest and later was pronounced dead at a hospital.
No arrests have been made.
Six robbery suspects followed a 42-year-old man onto a Red Line train at about 2 a.m. Friday, then demanded his belongings and attacked him with a knife and a broken glass bottle, police said last week.
The man pulled out his own knife and fought back but suffered stab wounds. Three of the suspects also suffered stab wounds, police said.
The other three were arrested.
