“Dear PoPville,

in light of today’s post regarding the assault of the dog walker, I wanted to share what happened to my friend earlier this week, as they might be related.

Around 11 a.m. on Wednesday 1/16, while walking in Columbia Heights, my friend was pulled into an alleyway at the corner of Sherman Ave. and Irving St. NW by two male assailants, who covered her mouth and threatened to stab her if she did not keep quiet. The men were incredibly violent as they stole her bag and patted her down for any other possessions, ultimately pushing her down a set of cement basement stairs and breaking her leg. (more…)
