Police say that on August 26, 2014, at approximately 10:06 p.m., an officer from the Northern District was on routine patrol in the area of the Cromwell Light Rail station located in the 7300 block of Baltimore Annapolis Boulevard when he observed a fight in progress.

When the officer pulled up and spoke with the 22-year-old male victim he learned that the suspect had already boarded a light rail train, which had subsequently departed from the station. Numerous officers responding to the area were able to stop the train, where they located the suspect and took him into custody without incident. The victim was transported to Baltimore Washington Medical Center with minor stab wounds to both his upper and lower torso.  The suspect was transported to Northern District where he was booked and processed.
