A man was stabbed multiple times during a robbery on a CTA Red Line platform in the Loop early Sunday, police said.

At approximately 2:30 a.m., a group of four men approached a 44-year-old man who was standing on the Lake subway platform in the 100 block of North State Street.

One of the men then took out a sharp object and attacked the 44-year-old, stabbing him multiple times on the right side of his torso. The men then took his belongings and ran away.

The Chicago Fire Department transported the 44-year-old man to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in good condition.

No arrests were made as of Sunday afternoon and Area 3 detectives are investigating, police said.

On Sunday, the CTA issued a statement that said, “The CTA has conducted a review of video footage at the Lake Red Line station, but has found no evidence of this incident occurring at the station or on CTA property. CTA continues to assist CPD in its investigation of the incident.”

The stabbing took place the day after a woman was shot in the knee in the same block while riding a Red Line train, police said.
