Sick. The knife wielding attacker hung around, as if he wanted to watch his victim die.
(NBC Chicago) The attack happened at about 11 p.m. Sunday [June 17, 2012] in the 1200 block of West Byron Street. As [Michael] Schmidt gripped his throat, he said his attacker just stood there for several seconds, watching his victim bleed profusely.
“He just had this sneer on his face. I think he was amazed that I didn’t drop to the ground,” Schmidt said.
Paramedics took Schmidt to a nearby hospital where the four-inch gash on his neck was treated with 40 stitches.
Schmidt later met with a police sketch artist who drew up a composite. He described his attacker as a black man about 30 years old who stood about 6 feet, 1 inch or 6 feet, 2 inches tall. The man was wearing a white T-shirt with black stripes and black shorts.
Anyone with information about the weekend incident or the man in the sketch is asked to call police at 312-744-8261.
The article does not mention robbery. Which leads me to believe, that the attack was fueled by pure hate.
