From MPD:

“Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Fourth District have announced arrests have been made in an Assault with a Dangerous Weapon offense that occurred in the 4400 block of Georgia Avenue, Northwest on Tuesday, April 26, 2016.

Members of the Fourth District responded to a call for the report of a stabbing. At approximately 9:02 am, two subjects approached a juvenile male who was exiting a bus near Georgia Avenue and Webster Avenue, NW. The victim attempted to run away after the subjects threatened him. The victim was tripped by the subjects, then stabbed with a knife; both suspects then fled the scene on foot. The victim sustained non-life threatening injuries.

On Tuesday, April 26, 2016, 19-year-old Deangelo McCombs, of Southeast DC, and 19-year-old Malik Dominique Lambert, of Northwest, DC, were arrested and are being charged with Assault with a Dangerous Weapon.”

    Does DC distinguish between “assault with a dangerous weapon” and “assault with a deadly weapon”?

  • courts

    Let’s see, 19 year old Mr. McCombs was charged with Assault With A Dangerous Weapon last June 2015, when he was just 18 years old, but ultimately released and charges dropped just a month ago when the government failed to prosecute him (per the dc courts website). Took him just a month to offend again. And I’m sure he has a squeaky clean juvenile record.
    Impressively, Mr. Lambert made it all the way through his 18th year without being charged with a crime.
    Will be interesting to see whether or not these gentlemen actually get prosecuted.

      Maybe he just needs the taxpayers to compensate him for not committing crimes?

      “Prosecuted” around here usually means- (a) plead guilty for a slap on the wrist $50 victim compensation fund fee + turned right back out to do it again, or (b) get a public defender and hold out for total nullification by a “he didn’t mean to do nothin wrong” jury + turned right back out to do it again.

    A little too close for comfort & in broad daylight. Not good.

    Wonder if these guys had anything to do with the stabbing homicide on upshur a few months ago?? Another unsolved Petworth juvenile homicide.
