BALTIMORE (WBFF) - One of Baltimore’s best-known historic communities is making history in a whole different way.
The number of reported crimes in Mount Vernon is up 48 percent this year, compared to the same time period last year.
The owner of Flowers by Chris on Eager Street became the latest victim on Monday, when she was held up at gunpoint and forced into a back room.
“If this continues in Mount Vernon, people are going to move out of Mount Vernon and go somewhere else,” said owner Chris Psoras.
Psoras escaped unharmed. After the hold-up, the robber caught a city bus and hasn’t been seen since.
