From MPD:

“This afternoon [Tuesday], at approximately 3:30 pm, a woman was walking in the 6200 block of 2nd Street, NW when she was approached from behind by a suspect who raised a knife to her and demanded her cell phone. The woman reacted by immediately trying to grab the knife away from the suspect. She was able to get control of the knife and she then used it to defend herself and repel the suspect. The suspect fled on foot and was apprehended by Fourth District officers some blocks away, having sustained significant injuries. The woman suffered minor injuries as she fought to defend herself from the suspect.”
