Four juveniles, ages 14 to 16, were stabbed and one of them was critically injured in Southwest Baltimore's Morrell Park neighborhood Tuesday, police said.
The other three victims are expected to survive.
A police officer was patrolling in the 2400 block of Washington Blvd. just before 6 p.m., when he saw a large fight break out among a group of people — one of them holding a bat, police said. The officer intervened and noticed several of the people had stab wounds, police said.
Four people were arrested at the scene, but have not yet been charged as police continue to investigate.
Race was a factor in the fight, police spokesman Donny Moses said, but he added, "it's a little more complicated than that."
It's the second stabbing incident in the same block in as many months. Phillip Windsor, 29, was charged last week with first-degree attempted murder in a July 24 stabbing there, police said. He was being held at Central Booking without bail. A public defender listed as Windsor's attorney could not be reached for comment Tuesday night.
