Police were investigating a serious stabbing that occurred Tuesday afternoon in Southeast Baltimore.
According to preliminary information from police, the unidentified man was found stabbed at about 12:30 p.m. in the unit block of N. East Ave. in the Baltimore-Linwood neighborhood, a few blocks east of Patterson Park. His condition was not immediately known, but homicide detectives were notified.
At the scene, the victim's shoes and some clothing appeared to be left behind in the middle of the street after he was taken to a local hospital.
A 30-year-old man who lived in the block but refused to give his name said he had seen the victim in the street and believed he was intoxicated. He was shocked to hear the victim was seriously stabbed.
"Don't be no trouble, no problems around here," he said. "We all look out for each other. That's crazy. That man had a family."
Earlier Tuesday, a man was listed in critical condition after being shot in the face in North Baltimore.
