Assault on Franklin St. bridge near the Metropolitan Branch Trail

From the Brookland listserv last night:

I was assaulted on the Franklin St. bridge today on my way home from work at about 4:30pm. I was on my bike and a group of about 10 14/15 yr-old boys were walking along the sidewalk (which is separated from the road by a concrete barrier). Two of the kids jumped the barrier into the street as I approached on my bike, the first hit me over the back of the neck (right under my helmet) with something really hard, the second kid tried to punch me and mostly missed. Luckily I didn’t fall, and turned around to notify the police that sit at the intersection. The kids took off, not sure if they were caught. Happy I didn’t fall, but will have a very sore head/neck in the AM. Just a warning to everyone biking over the bridge to look out for any kids jumping the barrier. And to let you know there are usually police at the intersection of Franklin and Edgewood RD if anything does come up.

We’ve previously spoken about safety on the MBT trail here and here.
