New details released after woman stabbed to death on CTA platform in the Loop

A woman is dead after being stabbed multiple times while standing on a CTA platform in the Loop early Saturday.

At about 1:26 a.m., the 26-year-old woman was seen on surveillance video walking up the stairs to the Adams and Wabash CTA platform. Shortly after, the offender could be seen on surveillance video following closely behind her and approached her on the platform.

As the woman walks toward an arriving train, the offender stops the victim from boarding, police said.

The victim then walks away from the offender, at which time, the offender pushes her multiple times.

He then pulled out a metal object and stabbed her in the chest, abdomen and left arm, police said.

The victim then pushed herself free and ran to the street level, where she collapsed.


She was transported to an area hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.

Police said this was an isolated incident.
