From MPD:

“On December 30, 2015, at approximately 2:30 A.M., Fourth District officers received a 911 call for a stabbing in the 3100 block of Mount Pleasant Street, NW. After canvassing the area, officers eventually located the victim. The victim reported that, after a verbal argument with an unknown male suspect who asked him if he had change for a $20.00 bill, the suspect stabbed him in the right leg with a small knife. The suspect then fled northbound on Mount Pleasant Street, NW. The victim further reported that the offense occurred at approximately 12:37 A.M.

The Fourth District is asking anyone with information about this offense to contact the MPD Command Information Center at 202-727-9099.”
