View Larger Map

A few readers have requested I share the following letter after a brutal assault in the alley behind the 1400 block of W St, NW yesterday afternoon:

Dear PoPville,

I wanted to make you all aware that one of our residents was brutally assaulted while entering the building from the alley at 4:45 p.m. today. The resident was taken to the hospital by ambulance and is being treated for multiple injuries. MPD responded quickly and they have viewed the footage from our security cameras.

One of the police officers assigned to our neighborhood can be reached at:

Lt. Vanessa Moore – (202) 673-7357

I urge you to contact these individuals whenever you feel unsafe.

Lastly, I suggest contacting Councilman Graham to express your concern/outrage at [email protected] and John Detaeye at [email protected], as well as Juan Camilo Barragan with the Mayor’s office at [email protected] They must address this hideous crime and prevent this from ever happening again.

As always, please be very careful of your surroundings and practice caution. Keep the resident in your thoughts and prayers.
