Baltimore County police yesterday released a surveillance video showing Ravens reserve linebacker Roderick Green being chased by his alleged attacker after being stabbed outside a Baltimore County bowling center.

County police said they released the video in hopes that someone will help them identify the suspect in the stabbing early Sunday morning at the Kings Point Lanes bowling center in Randallstown. Investigators also want to talk to a man, described as a witness, who is seen in the video.

The footage - a series of still frames that is 40 seconds long - shows Green running just outside the bowling center with a smaller man in pursuit. The witness is then seen walking in the same direction.

Police who have analyzed the video, taken from a bowling center security camera, believe it shows the suspect with a weapon or a sharp object in his hand, police spokeswoman Vickie Warehime said.

Green, 24, was hospitalized after being stabbed in the stomach about 1 a.m. Sunday. He was released Monday from Sinai Hospital, and he said the injury would not prevent him from participating in training camp, which begins July 27 at McDaniel College.

Green and a man accidentally bumped into each other in the bowling center, leading to a heated argument, police said. Green reportedly left the building, but the suspect followed him outside and stabbed him once, police said.

Green outran the suspect, got into a friend's car and was driven to his Owings Mills home, where he called police.

The suspect was described as a black man, 18 to 20 years old, 5 feet 10, with a thin build and a clean-shaven head, wearing sunglasses, a dark T-shirt with a white design on the front and long, black shorts. The witness was described as a black man wearing a white T-shirt and tan shorts.

Anyone with information should call Baltimore County police at 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7-LOCKUP. nick.shields@baltsun.com
