A woman was charged with stabbing three people during a fight in Lake View East on the North Side.

Lakendra Porter, 24, was charged with misdemeanor aggravated battery with use of a deadly weapon and reckless conduct, Chicago police said. She was scheduled to appear in bond court Wednesday.

Porter swung a knife during a fight in the 1000 block of West Belmont Avenue about 11:25 p.m., Chicago police said. The four had been arguing before the confrontation became physical.

  • A woman, 28, was stabbed in the chest, arm and back, officials said. She was listed in serious condition.
  • A 20-year-old man was stabbed in the back and was in fair condition, police said.
  • A second woman, 35, suffered a stab wound to the buttocks and was in good condition.
  • Porter suffered a laceration to her face and was listed in fair condition, authorities said.

The fight was one of several disturbances that broke out in Lake View East in the hours after the Pride Parade.

All four were taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center, police said.
