A man was stabbed Wednesday morning while riding a bus in Logan Square on the Northwest Side — the second stabbing on CTA property in a day.

The man, 68, got into an argument with another passenger on the bus around 9:15 a.m. in the 2500 block of North Damen, Chicago police said.

The passenger, a woman, then stabbed the man several times in his arm and body, police said. The man also had a laceration to his face.

Paramedics took him to Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where he was listed in good condition, police said.

No one was in custody.

It was at least the second stabbing on CTA property in a day.

On Tuesday, a woman was stabbed with her own knife while defending herself at the Cicero Blue Line station on the West Side.
