A Saturday night out turned scary for some at a Federal Hill bar after a fight lead to a stabbing spree that injured four people.

"It's pretty ridiculous because you move to this neighborhood expecting to live in a place that's safe," Jose Estrada told ABC2.

The stabbing happened at Club Banditos, a popular spot along Charles Street in Federal Hill.

"When the officers got there they found 4 people suffering from stab wound," Donnie Moses of the Baltimore Police Department said.

Three men including the suspect, who cut himself during the fight, were taken to the hospital with non life threatening injuries --a fourth man suffered more serious injuries but all victims are expected to be ok.

Police say 17-year-old Shawn Guzman is responsible.

"It's really unfortunate because this is a really nice neighborhood and nice area to live in i live right down the street," said resident Demitrios Woodson.

"The altercation started inside the bar, all three victims, were stabbed or cut in the bar the altercation started between two groups," said Moses.

Guzman is just 17, and somehow gained entry to the bar.

"The main question that I've been getting is why was a 17 year old inside the bar and that still remains a mystery," Moses said.

Guzman is in custody and will be charged as an adult.  Those who live in the area plan to be more vigilant.

"You'd think it would be a nice safe walk down the street go grab a couple drinks some food and head home but i guess that's not always the case," said Woodson.

Guzman faces attempted murder and aggravated assault charges.
