CHICAGO (WLS) -- A 29-year-old Chicago man has been charged in connection with the stabbing of one woman and battery of another on the Chinatown Red Line platform last week, Chicago police said Tuesday.

Markel Green was arrested Monday in the 7500-block of South Stony Island Avenue in Grand Crossing and charged with aggravated battery of a transit passenger and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, according to CPD.

Investigators said a male suspect stabbed a 22-year-old woman in the face, then assaulted another 20-year-old woman on the CTA Cermak-Chinatown platform about 10:30 a.m. last Wednesday.
