A man who tried to attack two people on Chicago's Riverwalk got more than he bargained for when one of his targets fought back by slashing him with a knife.

The incident happened late Monday near the entrance to the Riverwalk at Wacker Drive.

The alleged attacker was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital with cuts to his chest and face. He was listed in good condition Tuesday.

The two people who fended off the attack initially were taken into custody. but police said it was unlikely they would be charged because authorities do not believe the two instigated the attack.
