BALTIMORE, Md. — Baltimore Police have arrested 58-year-old Marvin Green for robbing and stabbing two employees at two Federal Hill liquor stores.
According to police, around 9:40 a.m. Friday, a man walked into Charles Street Liquors in the 1100 block of S. Charles St. They say he grabbed a Smirnoff Ice from the coolers, approached the counter, and handed the owner $2 as if he was making a purchase. He then pulled out a knife and demanded money from the register. The store owner told police the suspect grabbed his right arm through the window and stabbed him before he lunged through the window to stab him in the chest. Officials say the man fled the scene with his drink and without taking money.
Then around 2 p.m., officers responded to Jacks Liquors on the 100 block of W. Hamburg St., for a report of an armed robbery and stabbing.
A female employee from the store told police a suspect entered the store asking to use an ATM to retrieve funds to purchase an item and asked her for help. Police say as she was helping him, he pulled out a knife demanding money. The suspect then stabbed the woman three times in the chest. In a failed attempt to rob the store, he fled the scene.
The woman later told officers that she recognized the suspect and was able to identify him as a resident who lived just across the street from the liquor store.
According to a police report, both of the stabbing victims were transported to local hospitals for treatment.
Police say Green has been charged with two counts of attempted first and second-degree murder, two counts of first and second-degree assault and other weapon related charges.
