CHICAGO — A 26-year-old woman was repeatedly stabbed early Saturday on an elevated train platform in downtown Chicago before she fled to the street and died, police said.
The attacked occurred shortly before 1:30 a.m. on the Adams-Wabash platform in the Loop, according to a statement by Chicago Police.
“As the woman walks towards an arriving train, the offender stops the victim from boarding. ... The offender pushes her multiple times, pulls out a metal object stabbing the victim repeatedly,” said Commander Joe Bird, who oversees public transit police.
The woman “ran to the street level where she collapsed,” Bird said.
He said investigators were looking at security video. No arrests were reported.
“We believe this is an isolated incident,” Bird said.
