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

Baltimore City

Eastern District

Shooting: A male, 16, was sitting on the front steps of a house in the 1200 block of N. Milton Ave. about 1 p.m. Sunday when a passenger in a black Lexus fired several shots from a .40-caliber handgun, wounding the youth in the left wrist. The youth ran one block to a Fire Department station in the 1200 block of N. Montford Ave., where he was given first aid before being taken by ambulance to Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Shooting: A woman, 41, was in the 1000 block of Hoffman St. about noon Sunday when she heard several gunshots and felt a pain in her right leg. The woman walked home and was later taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where she was treated. It was not known if the woman was an intended victim or had been accidentally shot.

FOR THE RECORD - Because of incorrect information given to the police, a Police Blotter item in yesterday's edition of The Sun gave the wrong name for a man arrested and charged with burglary. Howell Lee Williams, 43, of the 1000 block of Marlyn Ave. was arrested early Sunday after the Harley-Davidson Store in the 8800 block of Pulaski Highway was robbed. Williams told officers that his name was Charles Siegel, but his true identity was later ascertained through a fingerprint check, police said yesterday. The Sun regrets the error.

Northern District

Robbery: A female student, 20, of Loyola College in the 4500 block of N. Charles St. was waiting for a campus shuttle bus outside Butler dormitory about 11: 40 p.m. Sunday when three men, one with a handgun, exited a red or maroon minivan and robbed her of her book bag. One of the men then sexually assaulted her while the others tried to disrobe her. The woman resisted and the men drove off.

Western District

Burglary: Four cans of fruit juice, $300 and several cartons and packs of cigarettes -- all valued at more than $1,000 -- were stolen from Fox's Cut Rate Liquors in the 1300 block of N. Fulton Ave. between Saturday and yesterday.

Baltimore County

Burglary/arrests: Two men entered the Harley-Davidson Store in the 8800 block of Pulaski Highway about 1 a.m. Sunday and stole $17,000 worth of leather jackets and accessories.

At Compass Road and Martin Boulevard, two men exited the truck and were caught after a brief chase by Officers Josh Heins and Randy Ballman. The property was recovered. Charles Siegle, 39, of the 8000 block of Grayhaven Road and Frederick Williams, 41, of the 500 block of Silver Run Road were charged with burglary and were being held on $25,000 bail each at the county Detention Center.
