Baltimore, MD – A Baltimore police employee was brutally attacked as he was walking to work on Wednesday morning (video below).
The 59-year-old civilian employee was just blocks away from the police headquarters when the attack occurred near the intersection of East Baltimore Street and Albemarle Street just before 6 a.m., WBFF reported.
Surveillance footage showed two suspects moving in on scooters, while a suspect on foot rushed in from behind and struck the victim in the head.
The employee was knocked to the ground as a result of the blow, at which point all three suspects rushed towards him.
As they robbed the noncombative victim, one of the suspects kicked him repeatedly in the upper body, the video showed.
The employee managed to get onto his feet at one point, but the same suspect sent him flying back onto the ground with another round of kicks, then brutally stomped on his head multiple times.
After rummaging through the victim’s pockets, he and the other two suspects fled the area, leaving the employee lying motionless in the middle of the street.
Police said that the suspects – one female and two males – made off with the employee’s keys and vehicle, WBFF reported.
The victim’s condition is unknown, and the suspects remain on the loose.
There is a $10,000 reward for the identification of any of the suspects in the attack.
It was the second attack on a Baltimore police employee in less than a week.
On July 19, Baltimore Deputy Police Commissioner Daniel Murphy and his wife were robbed at gunpoint near Patterson Park in the 2200-block of East Pratt Street at approximately 9 p.m., The Baltimore Sun reported.
A white SUV with four men inside pulled up near Commissioner Murphy and his wife, then two men jumped out and charged towards them while announcing the robbery.
At least one of the men – both of whom appeared to be 18 years of age – brandished a gun.
The suspects took off with a purse, wallet, the couple’s cell phones, and some cash, police said.
They also stole the couple’s Louisiana driver’s licenses, WBFF reported.
“It is extremely worrisome and troublesome and disturbing,” Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said of the brazen attacks, according to WJZ. “We are deploying all of our resources in the most aggressive way – but not abusive – to be in as many places as we can to deter it.”
