On Halloween night, four robberies occurred in Riverside, Federal Hill, and the Inner Harbor between the times of 9:24pm and 9:56pm. There were eight victims. Several of the victims went to the hospital including an Annapolis women who was attacked by “about six African American teenage females who were carrying backpacks and some of whom were wearing gray sweatshirts” with wood objects on the 1500 block of Henry St., according to the victim.
