Tougher times in 2011:
“Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department are seeking the publicâs assistance in identifying and locating a suspect responsible for attacking women. Detectives are investigating four recent incidents that appear to be similar in nature. In each incident, a male subject approached a woman while she was alone and stabbed or cut her with an unknown sharp object. In some cases the suspect fled when the victim screamed. The victims sustained non-life threatening injuries. Detectives are investigating the following incidents:
Sunday, May 5, 2013, at approximately 11:15 pm, an adult female was exiting her vehicle in the 400 block of Emerson Street NW, when a male suspect approached her and began stabbing her. The suspect fled when he saw a male witness. The suspect was wearing a dark hooded track suit with a large horizontal white stripe on the chest, and a yellow stripe on the sleeve.
Monday, June 10, 2013, at approximately 10:30 pm, an adult female was in the 1300 block of Decatur Street NW, when a male suspect grabbed her from behind and stabbed her. The suspect then fled. He was wearing yellow and black shirt with dark pants.
Friday, June 14, 2013, at approximately 12:05 am, an adult female was walking in the unit block of Adams Street NW, when a male suspect grabbed her from behind. The victim resisted and the suspect stabbed her and fled.
Wednesday, June 19, 2013, at approximately 12:15 am, an adult female was walking in the 1100 block of Allison Street NW, when a suspect approached her from behind and tackled her to the ground. The suspect produced a sharp object, cut the victim, and fled.
The suspect is described as being a black or Hispanic male with a light to medium complexion, short brown hair, and is 5-feet-8-inches to 6-feet-1-inches tall, with a slim athletic build. Anyone with information about these cases is asked to call the police at (202) 727-9099.

If you have any animal/pet photos youâd like to share please shoot me an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with âAnimal Fixâ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 3-4 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If youâve already entered your pet and would like to do so again â thatâs no problem â just space the entries out a bit.

“@PoPville ever hear any news on the shooting in Ledroit Park last Friday?”
On June 15, 2013, at approximately 0207 hours, two individuals were discovered by Third District Officers suffering from gunshot wounds in the 400 block of V. Street, N.W. Both individuals were transported to local hospitals with non life threatening injuries. In addition, an individual was stopped in the vicinity and three guns were recovered.
The suspect in this case is a juvenile with a violent history and we are working with the Office of the Attorney General on the prosecution of this case. I have also included the United States Attorney Roger Kemp who is the Third District Community prosecutor.
It would be helpful at sentencing if be community would write a Community impact statement. USAO Kemp can assist with the impact statement.
There was a second suspect involved and we are looking for any assistance with this case. Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Metropolitan Police Department on 202-727-9099.

I was walking my dog around 11 on Saturday night when I saw around 100 teenagers running from the police (some being taken down by the cops). They appeared to be coming from somewhere near the Marie Reed School (Florida, California, and 18th). Anyone know what happened? It was an incredibly strange sight.
My husband and I are seeking to enclose the basement-level space under the old sleeping porch of our row home in Hill East as a DIY project. We would like to use the space more as a shed for bike storage and other garden equipment/tools than as a completely finished space in our house. Making the space secure and protected from moisture are our main concerns.
At this time, our plans are to frame walls using pressurized wood and covered with sheeting, a vapor barrier, and siding. We also plan to add a basement-size window. However, we are getting stuck on the right venting approach to use. Is passive venting sufficient?
Has anyone completed a similar project for your house? Any advice or lessons learned that you could share with us? Materials used? Is venting even necessary?
Please see the attached picture. (As FYI, we are planning to move the AC unit out of the space and move the downspout so that it runs along the side of our house rather than the center)
