Washington, DC

From MPD:

“Alert: Stabbing Investigation 3800 block Georgia Avenue NW. Lookout for: B/M dreadlocks and wearing all black. DO NOT TAKE ACTION CALL 911″

A reader reports at 8:35pm:

“a guy was unconscious , laying in the safeway entrance, head wrapped, bloodied”

Another reader reported:

“Heard screams, saw people running, & run into a poor kid who has been stabbed multiple times in the head & is begging for help. Stayed w/ lots of others until police came.”

Updates when more is known.


Kids will be kids but lately, there’s been enough real crime in the area (Petworth). By the police officer not stopping, there’s a lost opportunity to educate. The officer, by default a representative of our community, is clearly sending a message that this sort of behavior is condoned or something that can be gotten away with. Read More

From a press release:

“Chef Alfredo Solis opens his newest venture, Anafre on Friday, November 22.

An anafre, meaning “portable oven” in Spanish, is traditionally a clay pot that has an opening in the bottom where hot coals are placed that then heat up the dish on top of the pot. The restaurant is an ode to Chef Solis’ mother who grew up on the Mexican countryside where she was tasked with cooking for the family. Since they lived without gas or electric, the anafre was their only stove. This style of cooking is interpreted in an open kitchen where most items will be prepared on over charcoal. Read More


Thanks to all who messaged about the van that ended up in the middle of Sherman Circle yesterday:

“Odd Sherman Circle crash from today. Incredible the vehicle ended up in the middle of the circle. Police temporarily taped off the area. Car malfunction? Thankfully, looked like no one was hurt.”

“The kicker is how far the truck made it into the circle. It ran all the way up to the center and hit a light pole. All air bags deployed. Park police had it all taped off and waiting for tow truck. This happened about 4pm.”

“On Tuesday, November 5, 2019 the District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS), in conjunction with the support of the Executive Office of the Mayor and relevant district agencies, will conduct an active threat exercise on the campus of Roosevelt High School. The exercise will take place between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. During this time, emergency vehicles and personnel may be seen moving about the campus. Please note, there is no real emergency or cause for alarm. The goal of this exercise is to improve upon the District’s ability to protect our students and staff, save lives, and reduce injuries.

We understand the subject of emergencies and active threat scenarios can be uncomfortable. For this reason, the exercise will take place on a professional development day when students are not in the building for classes.”


“Dear PoPville,

My wife and I were wondering if our baby daughter’s new fall and winter clothes had arrived yesterday and were surprised to not find them on the porch. We looked back through the footage on our camera and discovered that a package thief had walked right on up and taken them at about 2pm on Tuesday afternoon. A minute prior, he could be seen walking up the street, saying hello to our neighbor, and then exclaiming that he “forgot his keys” and walking away back towards the nearby grocery store. Read More
