Southwestern student stabbed near school


Baltimore & Region


A 15-year-old Southwestern High School student was expected to be released from a hospital last night after he was stabbed during an altercation over a dirt bike yesterday afternoon near the school, authorities said.

No arrest had been made.

The ninth-grade student, whose name was not released because he is a juvenile, was walking home from the school in the 200 block of Font Hill Ave. shortly after 2 p.m. He was in the 100 block of S. Ellamont St. - more than a block from the school - when he got in an argument with one or two other youths over the bike, said Agent Donny Moses, a city police spokesman.

Moses said the argument escalated to a fight during which the victim was stabbed. The spokesman said police were not sure whether the boy was stabbed by the youth with whom he was fighting or by another youth who joined the fracas later.

Moses said the injured student ran home and was taken to St. Agnes Hospital, where he was treated in the emergency room. Moses said the student was in good condition.

Antonio Williams, chief of the city school police, said his agency is assisting city police in seeking a suspect in the stabbing.
