WASHINGTON: 3 stabbed — DC police say ID’ing stabbing victims as Proud Boys, suspects as BLM group i
WASHINGTON — 3 individuals were stabbed at around 2:25am on election
night at 14th and New York Avenue in Northwest D.C., police say.
Initially, 2D Watch Commander Lt. Neal told ABC7 that the stabbing
victims were members of the Proud Boys group, and that the suspects were
part of a Black Lives Matter group.
Later, authorities said that reporting the affiliations of either group was premature.
“At 2:30 in the morning when officers are trying to gather
information on the scene, that information is preliminary in nature and
oftentimes, unfortunately, it changes,” Chief Peter Newsham said in a
Wednesday afternoon news briefing. “So all I can say is that after more
extensive investigation with the victims of the crime, we don’t know who
they were affiliated with.”
Lt. Neal said the victims, two men and one woman, were taken to a
local hospital. They have been cooperative with police, Newsham said.
A police report released Wednesday afternoon says the victims are
from Gaithersburg, Maryland, Mount Airy, Maryland, and Mommouth, New
There is currently a lookout for three suspects. Two are Black men
wearing black clothing and the third is a Black female wearing black
sweatpants with white stripes, orange leggings, and a dark gray coat.
Police say she is believed to be armed with a knife.
