Baltimore Police say a 64-year-old man was stabbed and robbed while sitting on a bench at Wyman Park Dell on Monday evening in one of a pair of incidents near Johns Hopkins’ Homewood campus.

According to WBAL-TV, the man, who is not affiliated with Hopkins, was approached by a group of four people while reading in the park area at the corner of East 29th and N. Charles Sts. They announced a robbery, and two of the assailants brandished a gun and a knife. During the incident, the man was stabbed twice, and maced.

The man, who is not affiliated with the university, was treated for his injuries and released. He had his iPhone, iPad, keys and money stolen. Police later recovered the phone using Find My IPhone, the Baltimore Sun reported, but the suspects apparently remained at large.

Earlier in the day, a Johns Hopkins student was robbed in Charles Village by a man who threatened him with a metal rod, WBAL reported.
