Police Blotter is a sampling of crimes in Baltimore and Baltimore County.

Central District

Robbery/arrests: Two men were arrested after they tried to rob two other men outside the Maryland Institute College of Art in the 1300 block of W. Mount Royal Ave. about 3 a.m. yesterday. A handgun believed used by one of the robbers was recovered on the institute's grounds. Dwayne McLamb, 21, and Kevin Jones, 24, both of the 300 block of E. 27th St., were each charged with attempted robbery.

Southeastern District

Shooting: A 14-year-old girl was shot in the left arm as she and a male known only as "Rob" walked past several men, one with a handgun, in the 200 block of N. Patterson Park Ave. about 3: 25 a.m. Wednesday. The girl was treated at Johns Hopkins Hospital and released. Police said "Rob" may have been the gunman's intended target because he fled the scene and has not been seen since the shooting.

Eastern District

Robbery/arrest: A man, 23, was in the 700 block of N. Montford Ave. about 4 a.m. Wednesday when a man who implied he was armed with a handgun robbed him of his wallet and $34. A suspect was arrested a short distance away after a witness pointed him out to police.
