Towson Student Stabbed, Robbed Near Campus

Last night around 10:45pm, Towson police found a young man collapsed on the sidewalk of Burke Avenue, a few blocks east of York Road and south of the Towson Town Center. The man, a commuter student at Towson University, had been stabbed by a group of young men who’d also stolen his cell phone.

According to Towson University police, the three robbers are still at large; it probably didn’t help that the victim passed out before he could give any more information to detectives.

In 2011, Towson was ranked the safest campus in the University System of Maryland. They’re also home to the infamous White Student Union, which has promised to host nighttime patrols to keep the criminals at bay, or something like that. Unfortunately (or fortunately?), no WSU patrol was on hand to stop last night’s stabbing. This incident comes about a month after another Towson-area stabbing; it’s unclear whether the crimes are related.

UPDATE: We received the following correction from Ray Feldmann, Director of Communications and Media Relations at Towson University –

There is not now, nor has there been, a white student union recognized or sanctioned by the Towson University administration or our Student Government Association.  Such an organization would be completely inconsistent with the values and belief systems we espouse.  Towson University fosters an educational environment that supports success for all of our students. The university is committed to diversity and providing a safe, inclusive, welcoming, and peaceful community that is respectful to all.  The so-called White Student Union that you referred to consisted of one student who has since graduated from the university.

    I heard about this stabbing on early morning TV news and, as a concerned resident of Towson, attempted to get some additional information via local web-based news outlets. I found nothing until this report. So thanks, Fishbowl, for being on top of local news events of interest to the public.

    I hope the student is ok – what a terrible experience.
