Three Northwest Baltimore teen-agers - two of them pupils at city middle schools - were arrested during the weekend and charged with murder in the stabbing of a 52-year-old man Friday evening near Pimlico Race Course, police said.

The victim, Joseph A. Harvey of the 5100 block of Chalgrove Ave., was walking in the 5200 block of Park Heights Ave., a few blocks from his home, about 5:30 p.m. when he was attacked by four youths and stabbed in the back with a hunting knife during an attempted robbery, said Detective Frank Miller.

Harvey died a short time later at Sinai Hospital.

Police identified the arrested teen-agers as Cory Barnes, 15, of the 2600 block of Quantico Ave., a Garrison Middle School pupil; Bryant Giles, 14, of the 3300 block of W. Belvedere Ave., who attends Pimlico Middle School; and Christopher Wallace, 15, of the 4900 block of Litchfield Ave., a student at Northwestern High School.

They were taken into custody at various locations, charged as adults with first-degree murder and held without bail at Central Booking and Intake Center, police said, adding that charges against a fourth youth were pending.
