Man Stabs 3 Victims In Chicago Store

CHICAGO, Aug. 2 (UPI) — A man entered a Chicago Walgreens store early Tuesday morning and stabbed three people, police said.

The man, in his 20s, walked into the Southwest Side store around 1 a.m., Officer Amina Greer, a police spokeswoman, told the Chicago Tribune.

Police arrested him when they saw people running out of the store, but he was not identified.

“He walked in, he looked normal,” said employee Manuel Rodriguez. “But he had a butcher knife.”

The victims were taken to Mount Sinai Hospital. The 46-year-old male store manager, stabbed in the hand, was treated and released, WLS-TV reported.

A 66-year-old female customer, stabbed in the breast, was listed in good condition. Another female customer, 40, was listed in critical but guarded condition, stabbed in the abdomen, thigh and arm, and was in surgery.

The motive was unknown, and it seemed the attacker did not know his victims, police said.
