Jake Naquin, a 10th grader at Bard High School Early College in West Baltimore, was waiting at Harford Road and The Alameda for a bus home to Hamilton one day last November when three teenagers came up to him.
“Basically me and two of my friends were at the stop,” he explained. “They asked us what school we went to. And we answered. “
So, Jake and his friends, unnerved, headed for another bus stop. They got about half-way there when the same group stopped them and demanded his phone. He says he thought they were joking.
