By Justin Fenton (Baltimore Sun, 8/4/2014)
A 41-year-old man told Baltimore Police he was attacked in a robbery try by a group of teenagers – one who was wielding a medieval weapon.
According to a police report, the man said he was sitting in the grass in Patterson Park next to the baseball field on Thursday night at about 8 p.m. when four juveniles, about 14 to 16 years old, came up to him.
One of them was wielding a “ball and chain,” and struck him in the face as the others stood by, the report says.
