Two Area Stabbings Yesterday, One Fatal
A man was fatally stabbed yesterday just after 9:30am in the 1500 block of Benning Road NE. Police identified the victim as 38 year-old Jelani Mohammed of Silver Spring, MD. According to a message sent by an MPD representative to a local email group, officers responding to a report of a stabbing arrived to find Mr. Mohammed "conscious, breathing, and suffering from a stab wound to the torso." He was taken to a local hospital, but they were unable to save his life. The original alert for the stabbing contained a lookout for a black male with a light to medium complexion wearing all black clothing.
Then last night about 7:15pm there was another stabbing not far away. This one happened in the 1900 block of Bennett Place NE. I don't have any information about the status of the victim, but the original alert contained a lookout for a black male and a brown Toyota (text of original alert appears below). This is in the Kingman Park or Carver-Langston area just north of Benning Road.
Alert:Stabbing at 1915 hrs in the 1900 block of Bennett Place NE. Lookout for B/M, Brown Toyota.
