At about 10:30 a.m., the attacker was standing near the Chinatown-Cermak elevated station, 138 W. Cermak Road, when he “produced a sharp object” and stabbed a 22-year-old woman in the face, according to Officer Steve Rusanov, a police spokesman.

The woman who was stabbed was taken to hospital by friends and no one was in custody.
