Police seeking help in Light Rail stabbings
Baltimore County police are seeking help from light rail passengers in identifying people who may have witnessed a double stabbing that occurred at the Patapsco Avenue station. It occurred Saturday shortly before midnight.
Baltimore County police said in a statement:
Officers responded to the light rail station in the 700-block of West Patapsco Avenue, 21227 for an armed robbery call. Two victims, a 27-year-old male and a 19-year-old male, were walking to the buses when they were confronted by a group of suspects. Both victims were stabbed multiple times and had their cell phones and other personal property taken during the robbery.
The 19-year-old victim boarded an MTA bus and left the light rail station. He was taken to a local firehouse for treatment. Both victims were transported to Shock Trauma for treatment of serious injuries. A third victim, a 45-year-old male, tried to intervene to stop the robbery and was punched. He did not require medical treatment for his injuries.
The suspect believed to be responsible for the stabbing is described as a black male, approximately 16 to 17 years old. The suspect and the rest of the group with him fled the location prior to police arrival and were last seen on foot headed towards the Cherry Hill area of Baltimore City.
