This is turning out to be a terrible crime week for our neck of the woods. Reader JD passed along this story about a home invasion and assault at the nearby Rhode Island Row apartments. The assault happened Friday, several news outlets covered it Wednesday, and I have looked around and have not found any updates since then. So, I am assuming the suspect is still at large. MPD has released surveillance video footage of a suspect, which you can see here. Police are asking that if you know anything about the case or recognize the man in the photo above/video please contact police at 202-727-9099 or text a tip to 50411. According to NBC 4 Washington:
A 24-year-old woman remains in critical condition after being beaten, kicked her and stabbed by a man who forced his way inside her apartment Friday…She was stabbed and slashed numerous times, including on her face.
Very chilling. Our prayers go out the young lady and her family/friends and our thoughts are with the residents of Rhode Island Row Apartments. Let’s hope they find the person who did this crime soon.
