Man stabbed in robbery on St. Paul Street

From the Baltimore Sun:
A 37-year-old man was stabbed in the back Monday afternoon during what Baltimore police say was an apparent robbery on St. Paul Street near Penn Station and the Jones Falls Expressway. Officers arrested three juveniles within minutes of the attack.

Police spokeswoman Nicole Monroe said the victim was rushed to an undisclosed hospital and is expected to survive. The suspects were being questioned Monday evening and could be charged as adults after the investigation is completed.

Monroe said the victim was attacked about 3:35 p.m. as he walked in the 1500 block of St. Paul St., at the northern edge of the Mid-Town Belvedere neighborhood. The spokeswoman said he ran about five blocks to Maryland Avenue, near the I-83 bridge, where he collapsed.

Names of the three juveniles who were arrested were not released pending charges. In at least one instance, officers could be heard over the police radio chasing one of the youths over rooftops in the area.
