“I woke up around 11:50PM because of noise from Takoma Station Tavern. Next thing I know, I heard screaming. Looked outside and saw a ton of people outside Takoma Station Tavern, and saw a lady getting dragged across 4th street (I think, it is dark). Lots of screaming & shouting, lots of people running down the street (presumably back to their cars). Craziness. I called 9-1-1, and the police arrived while I was on the phone (so I guess someone called before me).”
This was posted on the website for MPD 4D by the Commander:
