CHICAGO (CBS)– An attempted kidnapping in the Belmont Cragin neighborhood prompted a Chicago police alert. 

Police said on Tuesday, a victim was standing in broad daylight around 9:30 a.m. in the 5500 block of West Wellington Avenue when an offender armed with a knife exited a white SUV. 

The offender then “forcibly shoved” the victim into the back seat, according to police. The victim was stabbed throughout the body while trying to fight off the offender. 

Police said as the offender attempted to drive off, the victim jumped out of the vehicle and escaped.

The victim’s condition is unknown at this time.   

According to police, the offender is 5-foot-10, 18 to 19 years old and was wearing a black ski mask and a long sleeve gray t-shirt at the time of the attempted kidnapping.
