An assault on two males shut down The Block to traffic late Tuesday as police detectives sought information on the apparent altercation, according to Baltimore police.
Police responded to the scene in the 400 block of East Baltimore Street about 8:45 p.m. and found two males of unknown ages who appeared to have been assaulted outside "with an edged weapon," said Detective Jeremy Silbert, a police spokesman.
Silbert said he did not know whether the victims were stabbed, cut or injured in some other way.
The victims were transported to an area hospital, Silbert said. He did not know the extent of their injuries, but homicide detectives were not called to the scene.
The road was closed between Gay Street and Commerce Street as detectives from the Central District began investigating, and remained closed late Tuesday, Silbert said.
"We believe that it may have started as some sort of argument, that the two victims may have been involved with another group of individuals," Silbert said.
