Stabbing Thursday night at Power Plant Live after Ravens Kickoff Party
A 22-year-old male was stabbed last night at Power Plant Live shortly after the Ravens Kick-off Party ended, police say. At around 11:15 pm, the victim got into an altercation with another man inside Power Plant Live, detective Jeremy Silbert said.
The suspect, described as a white male in his "mid-20s," stabbed the victim multiple times before fleeing on foot. The victim did not immediately realize he had been stabbed, the incident report says. He was transported to Johns Hopkins Hospital, and his wounds are not life-threatening.
Police arrived on the scene shortly after a witness called 911, and they interviewed several witnesses. Silbert didn't know how many witnesses were on the scene, but the Ravens Kick-off party had just ended at 11 p.m., Power Plant Live rep Christopher Furst said. Some 2,000-3,000 people attended, according to the venue. Silbert says conversations with witnesses are ongoing.
Furst hadn't been notified of the stabbing when Midnight Sun called for comment. Sal DiGiorgio, spokesman for Power Plant Live, later e-mailed a response, saying that the incident was an "isolated altercation."
"Security personnel [sic] and BCPD were on site," DiGiorgio said. "The area welcomes millions of visitors per year to a safe atmosphere and is fully committed to ensuring the safety of all visitors."
