Man stabbed in fight at Cross St. Market

February 15, 2010

An early morning fight in front of Cross Street Market in Federal Hill sent a 24-year-old man to the hospital with a slashed artery in his lower back Sunday, police said. The man's alleged attacker, 22-year-old Pasadena resident Leonus Matthews, was arrested on charges of first- and second-degree assault, after stepping in to assist a family member who was originally fighting with the victim, police said. "The bars had let out. People had too much to drink. Tensions ran high," said Detective Nicole Monroe, a Baltimore City Police spokeswoman. "There was a disagreement between two people. [Matthews] intervened and stabbed someone." Matthews lives in the 4000 block of Brummel Road in Pasadena, Monroe said. The victim had non-life-threatening injuries, and was taken to a local hospital, where he remained Sunday night.
