Baltimore police arrested a 15-year-old boy in the stabbing death yesterday of his older brother inside an East Baltimore rowhouse, a department spokesman said.

The youth was being questioned yesterday afternoon and had not been charged, said the spokesman, Officer Troy Harris. He did not identify the suspect or the slain youth, a 17-year-old.

Harris said officers were called to a rowhouse in the 1100 block of N. Chester St., near Collington Square, about 10:20 a.m. and found the victim suffering from a stab wound to the side.

The spokesman said the 17-year-old was pronounced dead on the way to a hospital and that the suspect was arrested at the house. Harris said the mother of the victim and suspect was home at the time. Detectives were investigating the motive yesterday.
