A 35-year-old man was stabbed to death during an argument late Sunday in the Chatham neighborhood on the South Side.

Jermaine R. James was arguing with another male about 11:45 p.m. in the alley in the 400 block of East 79th Street when the suspect pulled out a knife and stabbed James multiple times in the body, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

James, who lived in the same neighborhood, was pronounced dead at the scene at 12:08 a.m. Monday, according to the medical examiner’s office.

The suspect ran away after the attack, police said. No one was in custody as Area South detectives investigate.
