Towson University student stabbed in off-campus Wednesday night dispute, police say

A Towson University student has been treated for injuries and discharged from the hospital after he was stabbed in his Towson apartment building on Wednesday night, according to police.

Four men had been let into the apartment at the student housing complex Altus Apartments on West Susquehanna Avenue at 7:30 p.m. by the victim’s roommate, Baltimore County police spokeswoman Jennifer Peach said.

The student, 19, was inside the apartment when at 7:51 p.m. he overheard an argument between one of his roommates and the men in the hallway outside their unit, Peach said.

The argument escalated into a physical altercation that moved inside the apartment, Peach said. The unidentified student was stabbed once in the upper body by an unknown object after he and a third roommate intervened in the fight, she said.

It’s not clear if any of the assailants were also students, Peach said.

The men left the building in the direction of York Road, according to a campus alert from Towson University police. Their direction after that is unknown, campus police said.

Peach said police are reviewing surveillance video of the assault caught on Altus Apartments cameras.

Police reports do not say what sparked the dispute. Witnesses did not say if anything was stolen, Peach said.

Anyone with information about the assault is asked to call Baltimore County police at 410-887-2361.
