A woman was stabbed several times early Friday after leaving a Wicker Park nightclub.

The incident happened about 2:10 a.m. in the 1500 block of North Damen after the woman — thought to be in her 20s — left a nearby nightclub with a man, police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said, citing preliminary information. After leaving the nightclub, a vehicle carrying a man and woman pulled up alongside the two and began yelling gang slogans, Greer added.

The couple in the car began fighting with the couple on the street, and the woman who had just left the nightclub was stabbed in the torso and back, Greer said.

The injured woman walked to Presence Saints Mary and Elizabeth Medical Center, and was later taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County with injuries that were not life-threatening. She was listed in stable condition, Greer said.

No arrests have been made in the case.
