Women’s safety is a concern for many in our society. In recent months, there have been a number of reports of women being harmed or murdered after rejecting a man’s romantic advances. It is unclear, yet, whether or not that was the case about at about 12:30 PM Central Time on the CTA Red Line train in Chicago. Nevertheless, a young woman is now dead after being brutally stabbed on the train by a disgruntled man.
Facebook was the first to learn about the tragedy. A user posted a picture of the woman’s lifeless body as it lay on the floor of the train, with the caption, “This dude just snapped and killed this girl on the train | 47th & Redline stop…… smh pray for #Chicago yall ( this was posted to show what we go through in chicago…we can’t even catch transportation safetly) ……..Its just sad #RIP.”
There are little to know details of the circumstances that led to the attack. Chicago’s FOX 32 revealed that the victim was a young, Black woman who could be in her late teens or early 20’s. It has also been reported that she was stabbed in the neck and pronounced dead at the scene. The police do have a person of interest in custody.
