CHICAGO — A 22-year-old woman is in critical condition after she was found bleeding with her face and neck slashed near DePaul University.

Just before 4 a.m. Thursday, Chicago police responded to a call of an aggravated battery on Halsted and Fullerton in Lincoln Park. When officers arrived, they discovered the woman bleeding from her neck, with cuts on her face.

The woman was transported to Illinois Masonic Hospital in critical condition. She has been unable to provide information on what exactly happened.

It was first reported that the woman currently attends DePaul, but a university spokesman said she is a former student.

Police are reviewing surveillance footage from the area, including cameras on the DePaul University's School of Music building, which is directly across the street from where the attack happened.

No one is in custody and police are investigating.
