Police, firefighters and paramedics from Highland Park responded about 11:46 p.m. Tuesday, August 3, 2021 to a report of a stabbing at an apartment in the block of 3500 Western Avenue in Highland Park near the border with Lake Forest.
ⓘ A few people have commented that this crime scene is in Highwood (not Highland Park), but Highwood is located just east across the parkway on the east side of Western Avenue and where the Fort Sheridan Metra station is located. Highwood also includes an area a few blocks east of Sheridan Road. This google map link shows the Highwood border.
Firefighters and paramedics staged near the scene while Highland Park and Lake Forest police worked to locate the offender and/or secure the scene. Police secured the scene by 11:58 p.m., and discovered two injured victims. One victim was stabbed, and one victim was struck in the head by an unknown object. A second ambulance was dispatched by 11:59 p.m.
The stabbing victim was transported with injuries initially believed to be non-life-threatening to Level 1 Trauma Center Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville. The victim with the head injury was transported with injuries initially believed to be non-life-threatening to Highland Park Hospital.
Apparently, a neighbor dispute escalated to a physical fight that led to the stabbing and strike to the head.
Initially, no criminal charges were announced.
At approximately 11:40PM, the #HighlandPark Police and Fire Departments responded to reports of a battery that occurred in the 3500 Block of Western Ave. 2 people were transported to local area hospitals. 1 of the victims was reported to have been stabbed.
