CHICAGO - An anonymous tip to the Chicago Journal told us a woman was fatally stabbed in the early Saturday morning hours yesterday in the Fuller Park neighborhood.

The Chicago Police Department has now confirmed the incident happened at approximately 3:15 a.m. early Saturday morning in the 300 block of W. 42nd Street near the intersection with S. Princeton Avenue in the Fuller Park neighborhood on the city's south side.

A 26-year-old female was in the front seat of a vehicle when her domestic partner became enraged during a disagreement. The offender pulled out a knife and stabbed the woman numerous times in the chest and legs. The offender fled the scene on foot.

The victim was transported to University of Chicago Hospital where she was later pronounced dead just before 6:00 a.m. yesterday, a little under 3 hours after the stabbing occurred.

The offender is not currently in custody. Area One detectives will be investigating.

We'll continue to update this post as we know more.
