Cops: Possible Drug Transaction Led to Stabbing

Police responded to a stabbing that happened outside a 7-Eleven on Jan. 20. Police believe the incident may have involved a drug transaction.

One man was transported to Skokie Hospital after he was stabbed and robbed of his iPhone on Jan. 20. According to police, the incident may have stemmed from a narcotics transaction.

The injured person told police that he walked out of 7-Eleven, 4834 Church St., with a friend, and was approached by another man who asked for a cigarette, according to police. While handing out a cigarette, the offender grabbed the victim's iPhone. A struggle would soon ensue and the cell phone owner was stabbed by a sharp object, police said.

The first offender was described as a black male, about 25 to 30-years-of age, 6-feet-tall and about 220-pounds. The man was also wearing all black and had twisted braids, police said. The second person was described as a Hispanic male, about 5-foot-6, 200-pounds, 23 to 27-years of age, wearing a black trench coat and all black clothing. He was also described to have a faded haircut and stud piercing on his left check, according to police.  

Police are not releasing any further information at this time. Once new details come in, Skokie Patch will update.

I'll go to that 7-11 and anywhere else that I feel like, because I pack some heat! You people need to get real and stop living in fear.

Dana's a BIG MAN! He packs heat. I bet you're just itchin to blow somebody away, right Dan? Maybe you should move to Florida. Find someone who might sort of maybe look kind of suspicious and shoot to your heart's content. Ride 'em cowboy!

Sully, If I'm robbed or attacked in a public place, I'd hope Dan was around and not you.
