Baltimore police confirmed that they are investigating a stabbing of a Charles Village man by an intruder who broke into the victim's apartment Tuesday night.

According to a report, the 25-year-old victim and his girlfriend were awakened by his barking dog at 11 p.m. and the victim went downstairs, where he found an intruder in the living room of his home, in the 3000 block of Guilford Ave.

The intruder punched the victim in the face, then pulled a knife and "continuously stabbed the victim in the face and his side until the struggle ended, allowing the suspect to flee the residence," according to a police report. Police said the victim was at Johns Hopkins Hospital in stable condition.

Police describe the suspect as a black male with a medium complexion, 6'0"-6'3", short hair and a slim build. He is believed to have entered through a rear kitchen window, which had been left open for ventilation. Neighbors told a television station that the victim had moved into the apartment one week ago.
