2 women hospitalized after domestic-related stabbing

Two women were hospitalized after they sustained injuries in what police are calling a domestic-related stabbing in the Englewood neighborhood.

The incident happened at about 5 a.m. on the 7000 block of South Green Street, according to police and fire department officials.

After police responded to the apartment for a domestic disturbance call they found blood splattered on the floor and walls of the first-floor apartment, said Chicago Police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli.

A 22-year-old victim told police that she was outside knocking on a rear door trying to get inside the home when the 27-year-old female occupant of the apartment opened the door, Mirabelli said.

As the 27-year-old woman opened the back door of the apartment the woman, who had a knife in her hand, began stabbing the 22-year-old, Mirabelli said.

A third woman was inside the apartment with the 27-year-old who witnessed the incident, according to Mirabelli.

The 22-year-old sustained multiple lacerations to her head, hand, arm, back and upper torso, Mirabelli said. The woman also sustained a collapsed lung, Mirabelli said.

The 27-year-old sustained a stab wound to the middle of her left leg during the altercation, Mirabelli said.

Chicago Fire Department paramedics took the 22-year-old woman in serious-to-critical condition to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn and the 27-year-old was listed in good condition to St. Bernard Hospital and Heath Care Center.

Charges are pending, police said.
