An SUV flipped on 13th St between Park and Monroe (25mph speed limit) last night around 9pm. I came home after both drivers had been taken by ambulance, but witnesses said both were conscious and walking. It appears the SUV tried to go around a white sedan, clipped it, and flipped over.
It would be great if MPD could do more to prevent reckless driving, so 5 of their officers don’t have to stand around on a blocked off street for 2 hours. Oh, and for our safety too. (Yes I realize they can’t prevent every incident.)”

“Metro Transit Police today arrested Brandon Lynn Williams, 19, of Forestville, Md., on an initial charge of misdemeanor sexual abuse that occurred last week at the Columbia Heights Metrorail Station.
Last Thursday afternoon, the victim, an adult female, contacted Transit Police via Metro’s online harassment reporting system. The victim reported that she was exiting Columbia Heights Station Wednesday evening using the ascending escalator at approximately 7:50 p.m. when she felt a hand up her skirt.

Detectives immediately contacted the victim to gather additional information and offer support. MTPD also deployed casual-clothes officers at Columbia Heights and other stations in an attempt to locate the suspect and other potential victims.
