Update from MPD:

“This morning, shortly after 9am, the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) responded to reports of a stabbing in the 3900 block of Chesapeake Street, Northwest near Wilson High School.

A Wilson High School student was approached by a suspect who demanded the victim’s property as he exited his vehicle. After a brief verbal exchange, there was a struggle that ensued, and the juvenile male suffered a stab wound to his leg. The suspect fled to the adjacent neighborhood and remains at large. The student walked across the street to the school where he reported the incident. The victim has been transported to an area hospital and suffers non-life threatening injuries.

MPD arrived on-scene and canvassed the neighborhood and crime scene area. At this time, the investigation is ongoing.

The suspect is described to be an Asian or Hispanic male, in his 30’s, approximately 5’7” tall, 150 pounds, and wearing all dark clothing.

Anyone who has information regarding this case should call police at 202-727-9099. Additionally, information may be submitted to the TEXT TIP LINE by text messaging 50411.”

Thanks to a parent for passing on from Wilson High School:

“At Wilson High School, we highly value and are committed to fostering a learning environment where students feel safe and secure. We also want to communicate clearly with parents about safety issues when they arise.

The Wilson Administration, MPD, the Office of Youth Engagement, and our school security team are involved in an investigation of a stabbing incident of a Wilson student.

This morning we were made aware that while parking at an off-site location, a robbery of a student resulted in the student being injured and transported to Children’s Hospital. Emergency and support personnel responded quickly and professionally, for which we are truly grateful. Using the information gathered, MPD is searching for the assailant.

While this event did not occur on campus, we are committed to providing safe passage for students, to and from school each day, and will continue working closely with all community resources to keep our students safe.”

“New-DC Police change location of student robbery/stabbing to the 4500 block of Grant Rd NW. Across from Wilson.”

  • The original press release from the high school wasn’t very clear — I wasn’t sure whether “an off-site location” meant somewhere near the school, or if it meant that the student had been attacked in a completely different part of D.C.
    .
    The Fox5 tweet was clearer in this regard.
