Police released surveillance photos Tuesday night of a suspect wanted in connection with a stabbing last week that left three people wounded in the Loop.
The victims were walking about 11:20 p.m. July 23 in the first block of East Lake when one of them bumped into a group of three males, according to Chicago Police. The males then became “irate” and one of them pulled out a knife and started stabbing the other people.
A 26-year-old man suffered serious stab wounds to his arms and thigh, while another 26-year-old man was stabbed in the chest and a 21-year-old woman suffered lacerations to her face, police said. They were all taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where their conditions were stabilized.
A short time later, officers located a 40-year-old man near the intersection of State and Lake who matched the description of one of the suspects, police said.
He was taken to Northwestern for a mental health evaluation, police said. It wasn’t immediately known whether he was charged.
Police also couldn’t confirm whether he or the male in the surveillance photos was the suspected attacker.
