Taken from the Caroline Street facility were televisions, laptops and bus tokens for low-income residents. There was also some property damage.

Health Commissioner Leana Wen said in a statement that the break-in hurts some of the city's neediest residents.

The clinic provides a wide range of services including, HIV/AIDS care, dental care, family planning and childhood immunizations.

"We are committed to resuming operations as quickly as possible to ensure continuity of care to our patients across East Baltimore and throughout the city," Wen said.
