From the Human Rescue Alliance:

“Jaquan Jackson of Washington, DC, was arrested yesterday on a warrant obtained by Humane Rescue Alliance (HRA) Humane Law Enforcement Officers and charged with felony animal fighting. Mr. Jackson turned himself in to the Metropolitan Police Department upon learning of the warrant. Other charges will be presented to a Grand Jury. 12 dogs, and one American alligator were seized in the case.

“Organized dog fighting is barbaric,” said Lisa LaFontaine, President and CEO of HRA. “The pain and suffering these animals endured was excruciating and to think that it was all for entertainment is repulsive. I commend the diligence of our Field Services staff who pursued this case with vigor.”

On June 11, 2018, Officers responded to a call about a dog that was actively hanging itself from a chain. When the Officers arrived, they found the dog was deceased, hanging over the fence. The dog was also observed to have scarring around its muzzle and forelimbs, consistent with organized dog fighting. (more…)

Ed. Note: MPD tells me “This arrest was made possible due to the help from the community. We certainly appreciate it.” These suspects were also charged with the violent robbery and assault where a woman was pushed down a stairwell after being robbed resulting in a broken leg.

From MPD:

From MPD:

“We wanted to inform the citizens of the Second District that an arrest has been made from that unfortunate incident on August 27, 2018 at LaFayette Elementary school located at 5701 Broad Branch Rd NW, in which one of our hard working crossing guards was racially harassed and threatened by a suspect who is now behind bars at the Metropolitan Police Department.

We thank the citizens of the District of Columbia for their outstanding help and patience with putting this criminal behind bars. Have a safe and wonderful evening!”

Unfortunately there was another unsettling aspect of this incident reported by the Washington Post:

“An operator at the District’s 911 center failed to send police Monday afternoon when a parent at an elementary school in Northwest Washington called to report a man outside the building threatening to shoot, according to a city spokeswoman.”
