Councilman David Marks announced Thursday that a task force will examine short-term security improvements in the Towson community where one college student was stabbed multiple times Sunday night and a second was robbed at knifepoint Monday.

“Downtown Towson is still a secure place to work, live, and do business, but crime anywhere is unacceptable and we need to do whatever we can to guarantee public safety,” Councilman Marks said in a statement.

Earlier this week, a pair of incidents shook the community in the area of Burke Avenue and Center Avenue in Towson, a residential community just east of Towson University and south of downtown Towson. The task force will focus on short-term fixes in that area, Marks said.
