ANOTHER FAKE ATTACK IN CHICAGO: “This Incident Is Now Determined To Be Unfounded And It Did Not Occur As It Was Reported To Police”

Guest post by Bright Start News

There’s been another fake incident in Chicago. Early reports indicated a 23-year-old college student was mugged and stabbed in Downtown’s Grant Park.

The student said she was walking east at 9:50 p.m. on the first block of East Ida B. Wells Drive when a man snuck up on her from behind and demanded money, according to Chicago police and a Columbia College crime alert.

She said she wasn’t carrying cash and gave him her debit card instead, authorities said. The robber took the card and stabbed her before running toward the lake.

The 23-year-old went to a convenience store in the 500 block of South State to seek help, police said. She was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital with three puncture wounds to the lower abdomen.

A 23-year-old Columbia College student was stabbed Wednesday night after encountering a robber at Grant Park, police said.

But then…

Based on a review of video evidence, this incident is now determined to be unfounded and it did not occur as it was reported to police.

At least this time it didn’t blow up into a FakeNews™ social media terror attack on Trump supporters. #BabySteps
