A juvenile male stabbed repeatedly in the back along the Golden Mile was hospitalized Saturday, according to Frederick Police Department.

The victim was in serious but stable condition and was taken to a local trauma center immediately after the incident, Lt. Andrew Alcorn said. Police responded at about 1:30 p.m. to the area of 1025 W. Patrick St. Alcorn said the juvenile was standing outside when the stabbing occurred.

The male suspect fled on foot toward U.S. 40. A detailed description of the suspect wasn't immediately available.

This marks the second stabbing along the Golden Mile in three weeks. On Feb. 6, someone stabbed a 61-year-old man in the back at a bus stop at South McCain Drive and Orchard Way. The 61-year-old victim survived the attack.

Alcorn said police are investigating, but there is no evidence the stabbings are related.

Tips can be sent to fpdcrimetip@frederickmdpolice.org, or residents can call 301-600-8477 or text 240-674-8477 to leave an anonymous tip. Alcorn asked anyone who saw anything suspicious Saturday morning or anyone with video footage to contact police.

Knife control??


Nope. This wasn’t really a knife attack. These are crisis actors paid by the gun lobby to divert attention elsewhere. Like Soros but from the other end of the ideological spectrum.

2nd stabbing of this nature in less than a month. Someone is running around unhinged.

What is wrong with people these days. SMH


Families not sitting down and eating dinner together. Heck, families not even together anymore.

People not attending church.

Bring back morals!

One does not need a church to have morals. I've seen more immorality from church-going folks than almost any other group....and that includes the preachers and profiteering evangelistic ones in it for money.




Too many single parent households with little supervision. Ask any elementary school teacher and they'll tell you what the challenges are, and all to often that the die is cast by the time the kids get to first grade.


Smh, not a robbery, but a(nother) stabbing in the *back*-- very cowardly + malicious!
