September 06, 2010|By Peter Hermann, The Baltimore Sun

A 37-year-old man was stabbed in the back Monday afternoon during what Baltimore police say was an apparent robbery on Maryland Avenue near Penn Station and the Jones Falls Expressway. Officers arrested three juveniles within minutes of the attack.

Police spokeswoman Nicole Monroe said the victim was rushed to an undisclosed hospital and is expected to survive. The suspects were being questioned Monday evening and could be charged as adults after the investigation is completed.

Monroe said the victim was attacked about 3:35 p.m. as he walked in the 1500 block of Maryland Ave., at the northern edge of the Mid-Town Belvedere neighborhood. The spokeswoman said he ran about five blocks, near the I-83 bridge, where he collapsed.

Names of the three juveniles who were arrested were not released pending charges. In at least one instance, officers could be heard over the police radio chasing one of the youths over rooftops in the area.

Because of incorrect information provided by the police, the location of the stabbing was incorrectly reported in earlier versions of this article. The Baltimore Sun regrets the error.
