Baltimore City

Eastern District

Stabbing: A man at a party in the 600 block of N. Wolfe St. was stabbed with a screwdriver when a fight broke out among a group of 15 to 20 people about 1:10 a.m. Saturday.

Northern District

Armed robbery: A man was at a bar at 31st and Greenmount streets about 2:45 p.m. Saturday when a robber grabbed $20 from him, then pulled out a handgun and demanded - and got - more money from him.

Southern District

Robbery: A man walking up to his home in the 700 block of E. Pontiac Ave. about 3 a.m. Saturday was approached by another man on his porch, pushed into the house and asked for money. When the victim said he had none, the robber hit him, tied his hands and feet, and ran off with his watch, a stereo and a videocassette recorder.

Western District

Auto theft: A 2001 Chevrolet sedan was stolen shortly before midnight Saturday from a service station in the 3300 block of Reisterstown Road while its male driver was paying a cashier for fuel. The man, who had left his keys in the car, told police that the thief - a man described as in his early 30s and wearing a blue coat - jumped in and drove away.

Baltimore County

Wilkens Precinct

Assault: Just after 2 a.m. Saturday, an occupant of a parked car near Bryant and Smith avenues in the Lansdowne area threatened a nearby resident who complained about its blaring horn. An officer was taking the resident's statement about the threat when a 22-year-old man rode by and was arrested and charged with assault.

White Marsh Precinct

Armed robbery: A 15-year-old White Marsh boy was arrested Friday night and charged with robbing an Essex man of a cigarette. The victim, 20, told police the boy demanded a cigarette, then lifted his shorts to reveal a handgun when the man told him he had none. The victim handed over the cigarette he was smoking, then called 911. When officers arrested the boy, they seized a BB gun.
