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.
