At approximately 8:40 P.M., two female victims were approached by two male suspects. The suspects demanded their property, the victims refused, at which time a physical struggle ensued. During the struggle one of the victims was stabbed three times. The victim was transported to the hospital, with non-life threatening injuries. The suspects were last scene running east on Maryland Avenue. The case is being investigated by the First District Detective's Office.
I can't locate the report, but someone stated that one of the women maced her attacker(s) prior to the stabbing. The same person said the stab wounds were to the victim's chest and arms.
BTW, if anyone is missing an older green Coach purse I found it (empty) discarded next to a trashcan around 7pm last night.
The Washington Post confirms that the woman sprayed her attackers with mace.
