A 15-year-old Edgewater boy tackled a thief, who then drew a knife and slashed at him, police said.
The boy, who police did not name, said he saw a suspect wearing a black face mask taking a FedEx package from the front steps of his home in the 900 block of Holly Avenue in Edgewater on Monday at about 4:30 p.m.
