    That stinks. Hopefully she is ok. I wonder if it was her own pepper spray…

    What time did this occur? I’ve never felt unsafe there even well after dark.

      Check the crime stats for that area where the streets end at Rock Creek Park and along the upper bike path. Lots of crimes like this in that pocket of Georgetown.

      The attack was at 6:45/7:pm at the entrance of rose park and end of dumbarton st. It was not the victims pepper spray, and they were luckily able to retrieve all their belongings.
