A reader writes around 6:15pm:
Lots of cops swarming the area from the NoMa metro to the dc schools building at 3rd and R St NE. Apparently three people jumped a cyclist and beat him. When I walked by I could see a fair amount of blood and the victim had obvious head wounds. They just took the victim to the hospital by ambulance.
Ed. Note: We last talked about a cyclist assaulted on the MBT trail in Feb. 2013.
