BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A suspect accused of beating up a woman walking home from the bar in Fells Point and then robbing her has been arrested, authorities said.
Kurt Fletcher, 26, of Oakley Avenue, was arrested about 6:45 a.m. Friday. He is charged with second-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault and robbery in connection with the attack, according to police.
The victim was walking back from the Cat’s Eye Pub in Fells about 1:30 a.m. when it happened, police said. The suspect grabbed the victim by her hair and then slammed her to the ground.
“Her friend then tried to help her by stopping the assault. At which time, that suspect grabbed her purse and then ran,” said Det. Donny Moses, Baltimore Police Department.
Afterward, the suspect, later identified as Fletcher, was caught on surveillance cameras using the victim’s credit card at a store a few blocks away.
Investigators said the suspect could be responsible for other cases.
At last check, the victim’s condition was not known.
