“Dear PoPville,

Saturday night around 1am there was a hate-motivated assault on Q St. NW between 15th and 16th across from the JCC, and it did not show up in the MPD blotter. I could hear yelling of gay slurs that escalated into some sort of violent attack where a man was yelling that he “f-cked her up,”

“should have f–king killed you” and yelling “f-gg–t” over and over again, and I think a transgender woman was injured. I couldn’t see what was happening during the attack but there were several witnesses hanging around when the police arrived.

I’m disturbed that the MPD would not report this given that it’s a hate-motivated attack and many folks in the neighborhood would feel unsafe. I did not see any activity on Twitter.”
