A 32-year-old homeless man was arrested Tuesday in connection with a stabbing that occurred Saturday at a McDonald’s in south Evanston, according to an Evanston Police Department news release.

The man was in the restaurant at 1117 Howard St. shortly after 9 p.m. on March 17 when he got into an argument with another person. Police said he stabbed the other person several times and fled on foot.

The person who was stabbed was transported to Saint Francis Hospital and remains in serious condition, according to the release.

Police arrested the 32-year-old Tuesday in connection with aggravated assault — which was unrelated to the stabbing — when he displayed a knife at Howard Beauty Supplies, 1123 Howard St. While in custody, detectives interviewed the man about the incident at McDonald’s and he admitted to stabbing someone, police said.

He was charged with one felony count of attempted murder.
