BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Ambassadors from the Downtown Partnership were deployed Friday to monitor intersections that see regular Squeegee Kid appearances.

The decision was made after concerns about the kids were made after numerous incidents involving motorists, including one where a 10-year-old boy was hit by a car in October.
