City police say a 27-year-old man stabbed in the neck during a stick-up in Northeast Baltimore last week has died from his injuries, while detectives were investigating a similar incident that occurred Tuesday night about a mile away in which two men were stabbed in the chest.

On April 27, police say Darian Kess walked out of his apartment, in the 1200 block of Linworth Ave. in the New Northwood neighborhood, to pick up a flier to order food and was followed back inside by three men carrying handguns. They ordered Kess and two others onto the floor and took money, cell phones and other property, said Detective Donny Moses, a police spokesman.

As the men were fleeing, one of them stabbed Kess in the neck. He was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on May 2 at about 3 p.m.

In a similar incident, police said two men were stabbed in their chests during an apparent robbery Tuesday night in the 1300 block of Walters Ave., in the Woodbourne Heights community. The victims — one 23 years old, the other 25 — were being treated at an area hospital.

Police said there were three suspects, but no arrests had been made in the case. It was not clear if the cases were connected.

Police also identified the man found fatally stabbed in Upper Fells Point last week as Gilberto Gonzalez, 22. Gonzalez, who police say had no fixed address, was found April 29 in the 1700 block of E. Lombard St. The case remains open.
