“Dear PoPville,

Just got back [12pm Tuesday] from a jog on the trail between the zoo & Pierce Mill in Rock Creek Park. A man who appeared to be homeless grabbed my hand as I jogged past him but I got away from his grip. He laughed as I ran off. I went to the police station and reported it. The police told me a number of people live in those woods, it’s hard for them to get an accurate count because people aren’t stationery. Anyway, thought I should let caution readers, some of them might not be so familiar with the Chandra Levy tragedy.


Police just called, they found the man & decided to charge him given his history of violence”

Very scary, glad to hear the police found and charged him.
