Man charged in chasing of 2 boys with knife

A 19-year-old Glen Burnie man has been charged with assault after allegedly chasing two Southgate Elementary School students with a knife as they walked to school.

The boys ran into the stairwell of the apartment building where they hid until they thought the man had left, then ran to a nearby crossing guard and reported the incident.
