A post-Pride Parade brawl in the early morning hours in Boystown sent a police officer, victim and offender all to the hospital Monday.
According to Police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli, a 31-year-old man suffered multiple wounds when he was stabbed by a 21-year-old man on Belmont between Sheffield and Clark. The stabbing occurred at approximately 2:46 a.m.
Witnesses flagged down police in the area, who found the victim on the ground. He was transported to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in stable condition.
But when police tried to arrest the alleged attacker, he resisted arrest and fled on foot.
"He became very combative and very violent," Mirabelli said.
The man ran through a plate glass and into Forever Yogurt, 931 W. Belmont, Mirabelli said.
Officers were hit with flying glass, and one suffered a severe laceration to his hand. He was also transported to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center.
Police arrested the alleged attacker, and he was taken to Weiss Memorial Hospital for evaluation.
Mirabelli said police do not know if those involved in the incident were part of Pride celebrations.
