Another attack last night?

We’re not sure if this is a separate incident or if one of the reports has the street name wrong – CBS2 reports of a knife attack at BERWYN and Kenmore last night around 1:50AM:

Woman Cut In Arm By Robber In Edgewater
Victim Was Waiting For Bus On Berwyn Avenue

CHICAGO (CBS) ― A man cut a 58-year-old woman in the arm and tried to rob her as she waited for a bus in the Edgewater neighborhood early Wednesday morning.

At 1:50 a.m. the woman was waiting for a bus at 1031 W. Berwyn Ave., near Kenmore Avenue, when the suspect came up behind her demanded money, according to Lincoln District police Sgt. Patrick Barker.

When she balked, the assailant took out a knife or some kind of cutting instrument and cut her in the arm, according to the sergeant.
