Medieval-style weapon used in park attack

A man was assaulted by a mace-wielding attacker in Patterson Park last Thursday, police have confirmed.

Sgt. Jarron Jackson of the Baltimore Police Department’s Public Information Office said that on Thursday, July 31, at approximately 8:15 p.m., officers responded to the park in reference to an assault.

Jackson said that the suspects were three juveniles, one of whom hit the victim in the head with a weapon “described as a mace or a ball and chain.” The suspects demanded the victim’s cell phone, but he got up and gave chase instead, losing them at Baltimore St.

Police ask anyone with any information about the incident, which they said was isolated, to call the Detective Unit at 410-396-2422.
