Three people were stabbed in two separate incidents outside a Towson hookah lounge Saturday night, Baltimore County police said Monday. Police learned of the stabbing while responding to a fight at Burke Avenue and York Road around 2 a.m., when one of the people involved said their friend had been stabbed earlier outside the Towson Nights Hookah Lounge Cafe. Police said the victim took himself to a hospital for treatment of non life-threatening injuries. The department said two other men — both 22 years old — were stabbed during a separate incident, just after 3:30 a.m. The victims were leaving the same hookah lounge when they were confronted by suspects, "who instigated a verbal argument that escalated to a stabbing," police said.

In an unusual move, the Baltimore County Planning Board has rejected a recommendation that would have cleared the way for development around one of the county's busiest intersections.York Road at Burke Avenue is a major artery for Towson area employees heading to and from work.Public works officials had asked that the designation of the intersection at the southern edge of central Towson be upgraded because surveys show congestion there may be easing.Stephen E. Weber, assistant traffic engineer for the county Bureau of Traffic Engineering, said this was the first time the board had rejected a recommendation on an intersection's designation since the county's Basic Services Law went into affect in 1979.
