An argument inside the Chicago Transit Authority Blue Line station escalated to the point where a 50-year-old man allegedly stabbed his brother in the chin with a pair of scissors.
Forest Park police were dispatched to the station at 711 Desplaines Ave. a little after 4 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 11, and were told two men had been arguing inside the terminal. The argument allegedly escalated after one brother told the other that they would not be allowed to live with their mother. The suspect allegedly then used a small pair of scissors to stab his brother’s chin and police observed a small cut on the second man’s face.
A witness told police that she told the men to break it up or she would call the police. The suspect later handed that person a pair of scissors and told her to throw them into the trash, which she did. Police recovered the scissors from the garbage.
