Baltimore police named the teenager wanted in the fatal stabbing of a 73-year-old man in Southeast Baltimore last week the city’s latest “Public Enemy No. 1.”
Christopher Straham, 19, faces charges including first-degree murder in the attack Friday afternoon near Pulaski Highway and Highland Avenue, police said Monday.
Straham was identified by a community tip after police released surveillance video of the attack, police said. Police have not released the name of the victim, who they believe was homeless, pending notification of his family.
In the video, the victim struggles to defend himself with his cane as the attacker pulls an object from a pocket and repeatedly thrusts it at him. The victim later died of his injuries, which included multiple stab wounds.
