Suspect Sought in Double-Stabbing Outside Christ Hospital ER
Oak Lawn Police search for man wanted in connection in stabbing of two brothers in parking lot next to the Advocate Christ emergency department. Suspect is identified as men's brother-in-law, police say.
A search is underway for Kamal Yasin, 32, of Chicago Ridge, who is driving a red 1996 Mercedes Benz with the Illinois license plate H711555. Police say he is is considered armed and dangerous.
Police responded to call of multiple persons fighting in the parking lot at 94th Street and Kilbourn Avenue around 11:28 p.m. Saturday.
Officers followed a blood trail to the emergency department they learned two brothers were being treated for knife wounds, according police news release.
The first brother is a 30-year-old Burbank man who was stabbed in the head and torso. The second brother is a 20-year-old Chicago Ridge man who was stabbed in the face and back, police said.
Both men are hospitalized in serious condition at Advocate Christ.
Police believe the stabbings stemmed from an incident earlier in the evening at a family member’s residence in Chicago Ridge. Yasin is alleged to have followed both brothers to the parking lot where they had gone to check on a relative unrelated to the earlier incident at home.
Yasin is considered armed and dangerous. Police ask the public to call 911 immediately if they spot Yasin or his car.
