Stabbing: A NE Baltimore Trend?

I'm no Sherlock Holmes, but I do find it interesting that in the last 6 months, there have been 4 murders committed along the Harford Road corridor between Hamilton Avenue and Taylor Avenue, and 3 of them have been stabbings. (Indicated in black on this map.)

The police recently sent out flyers for a "Person of Interest" in the killing of our Westfield member, Daniel Hoeck. Please download the .pdf file by clicking here to vist the WNIA website.

Also, don't forget that the next WNIA meeting will be next Tuesday, March 3rd, at the Holiday House, at 7:30 pm.

This map is from the Baltimore Sun, but you can also look up crimes at SpotCrime.com. You will see that although the entire city is struggling with crime and murder, stabbing deaths are relatively rare. So double check the locks, keep an eye out for your neighbors, and turn the porch light on ....

If you go back to June it's been 4 stabbings. There was one on June 14th near Hamilton Ave and Harford.
