This edition: Easter Sunday crime blotter
From the incident report for an assault on the 5900 block of Piney Branch Road NW: “Complaintant reports he was play fighting with suspect (his uncle). Suspect became upset and left. Suspect then returned with a baseball bat and struck complaintant once in the stomach and once in face with the bat. Suspect then fled east on Peabody St. NW. Complaintant received a bloody nose and a bruise on his stomach.”
A curious resident wonders what the commotion was at 7th and N Streets NW around 5 p.m. “We had two females fighting – and a consequent stabbing,” writes 3rd District Inspector Patrick Burke. “A suspect is named in the case. The large police presence was likely due to the canvass and preservation of the crime scene.”
Still more Easter togetherness: Burke reports that “A Burglary occurred in the 1600 block of Park Rd. NW between the times of 6:25pm and 6:50pm. The complainant states that an unknown male knocked on the door and produced a machete. The complainants were tied up. Stolen is US Currency, assorted cellphones and a wallet.”
