A 21-year-old man was stabbed in the chest multiple times during a robbery in Lakeview early Tuesday morning, according to police.

The man was parking a car in the 2800 block of North Halsted Street at about midnight, when two cars pulled up and several unknown people—one visibly armed—got out and said they were robbing him. They then pulled him out of the car and stabbed and beat him, according to police.

The victim was with another man, 37, at the time of the robbery. The older man was outside the vehicle and uninjured, though his gold chain was stolen during the incident.

The 21-year-old man was taken to Illinois Masonic Hospital in good condition. This case is ongoing, and no one is currently in custody.
