BALTIMORE — West Lombard Street between Paca and Eutaw is a busy strip, but it is there, at a quarter past 11 'clock in the morning Monday, where police say a 50-year-old man was stabbed in the neck.
According to the police report obtained by WMAR 2-News, the suspect came up from behind cutting the victim in the back of the neck.
It happened right in front of the University of Maryland Immediate Care Facility.
Someone came to his aid and was able to recover the knife.
The victim was taken literally around the corner to Shock Trauma.
The victim he told police there he has just left work on South Greene street where the University of Maryland Medical Center is, but the Univerity of Maryland School of Medicine is refusing to say whether or not the victim is an employee of the school or hospital.
But as busy as this street is, and for the time of day it was, police were able to find the attack on hospital cameras in the area.
Today, detectives released two still images of a person they are calling a person of interest who was wearing a dark green jacket, gray hoodie and a skull cap.
Police could not track him down yesterday and are hoping these pictures yield tips in order to help make an arrest.
Anyone with information on the identity of the individual seen in these pictures is asked to call 410-396-2400.
