Chicago Man Arrested After Allegedly Attacking Gay Couple and Then Stabbing Local Prosecutor

Edgar Diaz, 21, may have picked the wrong Good Samaritan to beat up after attacking a gay couple. Diaz attacked a man who came to the assistance of a gay couple being allegedly assaulted by Diaz and his friends. Diaz is accused of beating and stabbing the man who turned out to be a brave young prosecutor on his way to fish in Lake Michigan. Diaz not surprisingly is a reputed gang member and he is being held on $750,000 bond

The incident literally struck home with me because it occurred in the same park that I take my kids when visiting my home town. Chicago has beautiful parks running along the beaches of Lake Michigan. However, recently there has been an uptick in gang activity along the lake.

After the 32-year-old prosecutor yelled for the men to stop, he was stabbed multiple times and cut in his face, right side and arms. What is disappointing is the lack of other arrests since accounts indicate that Diaz was part of a group.

The Cook County prosecutor tried to stop Diaz from assaulting the gay couple which had been walking hand in hand in the park. Diaz is now charged with attempted murder and two counts of aggravated battery.

I would not expect a plea from the Cook County prosecutors.

  1. Speaking of fishing this story sounds fishy…..who fishes in Lake Michigan at7pm in Sept. off Diversey? What kind of fish are there? I have been doing research and I found out the attempt murder charges were dropped cause he wasn’t the person who did this,the CPD again got it wrong…..they just want Headlines so people think they are doing their job.They are picking up bangers and saying they are doing this so “someone “takes the fall cause really who cares about bangers?This kind of police work isn’t stopping the killings or anything else,it’s wasting taxpayer money by grabbing the wrong people and saying they did it when they know they didn’t.,that’s sad

  2. You have to understand what you’re dealing with. He’s 21 years old, so he isn’t a kid.

  3. Yeah this looks like a fine upstanding American citizen…WTH are we doing as a country? Why are we not deporting these POS’s out of our country where they can’t take advantage of the freedoms and civil liberties we hold so dear and they use as a shield to protect them while they continue to laugh in the faces of our police and attack/kill our prosecutors? This is insane and it’s only getting worse. This isn’t an attack on Muslims, Blacks, Hispanics, Whites or Asians. 99% of each of those races are great people who just want to work hard and provide a good life for themselves and their families. But POS’s like this kid need to be dealt with like a ravenous dog and honestly, a bullet is a lot cheaper than an airline ticket….

  4. They transferred me from Chicago to Milwaukee. I got fired in Milwaukee. I wish I was still in Chicago. I can deal with Chicago.
