A man was seriously injured Friday after he was stabbed and had bleach thrown into his eyes while responding to a home invasion in West Garfield Park.

The man went there and saw “numerous” males and females striking another family member, the source said. He entered the home and tried to stop the attack, but was stabbed and had bleach thrown into his eyes, the source said.
