Police Blotter is a sampling of crimes from police reports in Baltimore City and Baltimore County.
Burglary: The owner of a business in the 3100 block of W. North Ave. arrived about 9 a.m. Monday to find the door ajar and $15,000 worth of clothing missing. Police said a witness saw two men in a light brown Dodge Omni loading clothing into the vehicle before driving off about 8:30 a.m.
Theft from vehicle: Two women, ages 24 and 22, reported at 9:15 p.m. Monday that their cars had been broken into in the 500 block of E. Chase St. The first found the front passenger window of her 2001 Mazda smashed and a five-inch, black-and-white television and 10 compact discs missing. The second, whose 1997 Nissan with Pennsylvania tags had a broken left rear window, was missing a gym bag with clothes.
Burglary: A woman left for work at 8:30 a.m. Monday and returned in midafternoon to find her home in the 1900 block of Sherwood Ave. had been entered through the back kitchen door. A stereo worth $400 was the only item missing.
Burglary: A metal box containing $1,850 in cash and the deed to a house in the 8500 block of Oakleigh Road was stolen yesterday from a locked desk drawer there between 12:25 p.m. and 12:40 p.m. Monday, apparently by a man nicknamed "Shutter" who had offered to spray-seal the driveway. After the owner declined, he was distracted by the man's companion -- described as a pregnant gypsy -- while the theft occurred.
Stabbing: After an argument with his ex-girlfriend at the Catonsville Library about 1 p.m. Monday, a man left in a car with a female friend. The former girlfriend followed in her car, and at a red light got out, approached the other vehicle and allegedly stabbed the 23-year-old man in the upper chest with a sharp object through an open passenger window. The man was treated at Northwest Hospital Center. About 6 p.m., Camile Wyche, 27, of the 4900 bock of Stafford Road surrendered and was charged with attempted murder.--
