Another disturbing report from a reader:

“This was so disturbing and even more annoying that I couldn’t get 911 to pick up.

I witnessed 3 young guys corner a guy in broad daylight in the middle of the street 9th and H St NW about 5 PM and start beating him. Everyone started screaming cars were honking because they were literally blocking rush hour traffic. Tons of witnesses and people rushing to break it up. I called 911 and was on hold…Never got through but I think someone did. It ended and everyone just walked away including the guy that was getting beat up which was suspicious. By the time I reached Gallery Place 2 blocks later I saw cop cars arriving but I’m not sure what they could’ve done…”
