CAROL STREAM, Ill. (AP) — Six people have been stabbed in a suburban Chicago apartment by a 34-year-old man who police say was defending himself against his girlfriend’s relatives and friends. The Chicago Sun-Times reports Wednesday from a police statement that officers arrived to a “chaotic scene” about 11 p.m. Tuesday in Carol Stream. The man lives in the apartment and a preliminary investigation shows he was being attacked. His girlfriend also lives in the apartment. Police said “it is reported that, in an attempt to defend himself, the man stabbed six individuals while they hit and kicked him.” None of the people stabbed suffered life-threatening wounds.
