Johns Hopkins Security has been made aware of a attempted armed robbery/attempted stabbing near the East Baltimore campus.

CAMPUS:  East Baltimore

LOCATION:  400 Block of N. Castle St. at Jefferson St. (in alleyway)

DATE:  Sunday, August 4, 2019 at 5:50 a.m.

SUSPECT DESCRIPTION:  Male with a scruffy beard, wearing a white tank top, blue jeans and in his early 40's.

On the above date and time, the victim advised that he was on his way to a bus stop located on Fayette Street. As the victim approached an alley on Jefferson Street, the victim advised that the suspect approached him and demanded his belongings.
