A man was robbed and stabbed early Wednesday at a CTA Orange Line stop in Brighton Park — hours after another man was stabbed on a Red Line train on the South Side.

About 4:30 a.m., the 40-year-old was near the Orange Line stop in the 4900 block of South Western Avenue when someone stabbed him and took his personal items, Chicago police said.

The man suffered several cuts and was taken in serious condition to Mount Sinai Hospital, police said.

Tuesday night, another man was seriously injured when someone stabbed him on a Red Line train in the first block of West 95th Street, according to police.

The man, 28, got into an argument about 9 p.m. with a 21-year-old man, who pulled out a knife and began to stab him repeatedly, police said.

He suffered multiple wounds to the stomach, head and arms and was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn in critical condition, police said.

The attacker suffered cuts to his hands and was taken to the same hospital, where he was listed in good condition, police said.
