Teenagers With Bats, Boards Attacked People in Federal Hill, Police Say

Teenagers with bats and boards attacked people on Halloween night in Federal Hill, police said.

While things were quiet Tuesday night in Fells Point because some businesses closed early and a heavy police presence was established for Halloween, there was an uptick in violence in other parts of the city involving teenagers.

In Fells Point, the merchant association, in a coordinated effort with police, decided the best thing to do would be to close early as many businesses turned the lights out at 8:30 p.m. At the same time, law enforcement set up huge dump trucks blocking vehicular traffic to protect pedestrians.
