A McDonald’s patron who was peacefully eating Tuesday morning has been brutally stabbed by a complete stranger who approached him and launched a sudden attack.
Police said that the 32-year-old victim was at the Rock ‘n’ Roll McDonald’s in the 600 block of North Clark Street when the random incident occurred.
The assailant approached him and began yelling. He then pulled out a sharp object and knifed the victim several times.
Police said that the man ran away looking for help and was eventually rushed to Northwestern Hospital where he received treatment for stab wounds in the arm, hip, and chest.
Earlier this week, Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown revealed that officers have seized 9,000 illegal firearms and made more than 4,000 arrests.
“Those numbers are on record pace for a historic high number of guns seized.
