Baltimore woman stabbed by home intruder

March 22, 1998

An 82-year-old woman was stabbed several times yesterday by a man who forced his way into her home demanding money, Baltimore police said.

Margaret Albert of the 900 block of Chestnut Hill Ave. in the Waverly area was treated at Sinai Hospital for chest wounds and was reported in good condition.

A neighbor who heard her screaming called police.

Albert told police a man came to her house between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. asking for someone who did not live there, and returned about 12: 30 p.m. -- this time forcing his way inside after the woman answered his knock on the door.

The attacker struck and choked her, demanding money, then stabbed her several times before fleeing -- apparently without taking anything, police said.
