I thought this was a bizarre crime report from the MPD listserv, thankfully the suspect was apprehended.
“Word on the street is that there was a mugging at Eastern Market and that’s the reason for all of the police activity. Could you please confirm or clarify?”
The MPD response:
“There was an assault at the market, subject punched 2 individuals in the face and fled the scene. He has been apprehended and is being processed.”
