Pro-life protesters attacked outside Baltimore Planned Parenthood

By Ryan Dickstein,


Police are in search of a man caught on video attacking a pair of pro-life protesters.

It happened Friday morning outside the Planned Parenthood on N. Howard Street in North Baltimore.

Two men, ages 73 and 80, were at the location opposing abortion.

Surveillance shows an unidentified man approaching the 80-year-old protester first.

Police say he appeared to be speaking in an aggressive manner.

At one point footage shows the suspect about to turn away, before rushing at the protester and tackling him over a flowerpot.

The second protester, identified as Mark Crosby, then runs over to help the victim only to be shoved to the ground by the suspect.

While Crosby is already down on his back, the suspect is seen punching him in the face with a closed fist.

Before walking away the suspect is seen kicking Crosby in the face with what police described as "extreme force."

Aside from reviewing video footage, police say they spoke to at least three people who personally witnessed the assault.

Crosby was taken to Shock Trauma and is now stable. The other victim was treated for minor injuries on scene.

A GoFundMe has been set up to help with Crosby's medical expenses.
