Calumet City Police respond near Sibley and Douglas

Calumet City Police respond Monday near the intersection of Douglas Avenue and Sibley Boulevard.

CALUMET CITY — A street fight between several people that ended with one being beaten and stabbed prompted police to form a perimeter around the area Monday afternoon in order to search for the alleged suspect.

Chief Christopher Fletcher said officers saw the suspect run inside of a home in the 500 block of Douglas Avenue, where they later executed a search warrant.

With help from the South Suburban Emergency Response Team, police formed the perimeter and blocked off a portion of Sibley Boulevard — just west of the state line —as they conducted the search that ultimately yielded nothing, Fletcher said.

Fletcher said the one victim, who is currently in stable condition, was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn for treatment.
