Man stabbed, robbed by homeless man in Glen Burnie
GLEN BURNIE, Md. (WBFF)Police say a man was stabbed in the forehead during a robbery in Glen Burnie on Christmas Eve by a homeless man.
The incident was reported just after 3 p.m. on Ritchie Highway. Police say a 41-year-old man was approached by a suspect identified as 52-year-old Edward Wayne Kramer. Kramer approached the victim and told him that someone had robbed him and thus didn't have any money. Police say that the victim said that he felt sorry from Kramer and gave him a couple of dollars from his pocket.
That's when the suspect pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim as he was walking away, demanding that he give him the rest of his money. The victim questioned way he was doing this and he replied saying that he "was not going to be poor on Christmas."
Kramer continued to say that he would stab him again and set him on fire if he didn't give up the money, while going through the victim's pockets.
Police requested several officers to canvass the area in an effort to locate the suspect. Not long after they are able to identify a person matching the description and detained him.
During the arrest, officers were able to recover the money taken from the victim and the knife used to assault the suspect.
Charges are pending.
