Dear PoPville,

Just wanted to make you aware of an assault/attempted robbery that occurred last night at 11th and Clifton St, NW around 11:45pm. I heard screaming so I went outside and a woman was on the ground hysterical.

Cops were called and arrived on the scene about 5 min later. Her story was that a man was in the bike lane as she was riding her bike and she slowed down to go around him but he pushed her over and then two guys jumped out of a nearby parked car and began hitting her on the head with an object. She started to scream and the men ran away. They were not successful in stealing any of her stuff. I don’t believe they caught the men.
