From MPD:

“On August 3, 2013, at approximately 2:30 a.m., members of the Metropolitan Police Department and the Metro Transit Police Department responded to 13th and U Street, NW, in reference to a call for an assault in progress. Once on the scene, the units located a complainant who stated that she had been walking east bound in the 1300 block of U Street, NW, when she was struck in the face by an individual as a second subject took her purse. At that point, a total of five (5) subjects attempted to flee the scene by entering the metro station in the 1200 block of U Street, NW. All five subjects were stopped with the assistance of Metro Transit Police, positively identified by the complainant, and placed under arrest.”
