“CAPITOL HILL CARJACKING, 300 blk L St SE-DC. 52YR-OLD woman struck by fist/blunt object in head/jaw, was unconscious, bleeding from jaw.”

From a neighborhood listserv:

“I was carjacked and assaulted by 2-3 guys around 9:30pm at L street between 3rd and 4th street, SE Washington, DC on Friday December 18, 2015.

I was taken to the GW hospital ER Room by the police around 10:00pm.

I suffered one broken nose bone, few broken jaw bones, broken left lips and 2 broken teeth. I also suffered a big blow to my back head. I had an oral surgery and 12 stitches on my lips and still have severe headache. I was released from hospital Sunday afternoon, December 20, 2015. It will take a few months and additional 2-3 surgeries in order for me to recover.

I lost my iPhone, car, wallet and some other personal items inside of the car.

My car is a silver Honda Civic EX sedan with 4 doors and a moon roof with DC plate number EG2475.

Please contact me or call the police if you happened to see the car.”

  • Oh my god, how horrifying. Good thoughts to the victim – we’re neighbors and this is where I regularly park my car. Yikes.

  • If the suspects are found, here’s what will happen thanks to our laws and feckless prosecutors:
    1) If they’re juveniles, they’ll face a slap on the wrist and nothing else.
    2) If they’re adults, the US Attorney’s office will take a plea deal where they plead to something ridiculously minor like Unauthorized Use of a Vehicle and Theft, instead of a felony. They’ll then be released with minimal or no jail time.

  • So sorry to hear this and best wishes in your recovery.
    .
    We really need city officials to step up their game. This kind of thing is happening too frequently and is terrifying!

  • To the victim: In the event they catch these guys, you must stay vigilant and maintain contact with the U.S. Attorney’s Office. They will need to be able to fall back on your personal account of the misery that you’ve experienced when the defense is asking for leniency.

  • In the off chance the victim reads this, I just want to say I had a similar, though not quite as severe, injury this summer (broken nose, fractured cheek, three broken teeth, lots of stitches in my lips (mainly under, but some over)), and it seemed unbearable while recovering, but I cannot believe how well my face healed. Please keep up hope that it will get better. I am so sorry this happened to you.

  • Your description of your injuries is horrifying. So sorry this happened to you, and I hope your recovery goes smoothly.
