Man allegedly attacked with knife on G Street

A woman attacked a student and threatened another pedestrian with a knife at the corner of 21st and G streets Friday, according to a Metropolitan Police Department report.

The suspect, described as a heavy, 5-foot-6 black woman in her early twenties, allegedly walked up to a freshman and hit him in the right side of the face at 8:15 a.m., according to the report.

She then took his headphones from his ears and threw them on the ground, asking him, “What you want?” and making a “threatening gesture,” according to the report.

The woman then walked west on 21st Street, where she encountered a 58-year-old man who reported to MPD that she bumped into him.

When he asked her if there was a problem, the woman “produced a knife and stated to [the man], ‘This is the problem,’ ” the report states.

According to the report, the woman was last seen walking west on the 2100 block of G Street. Neither alleged victim responded to requests for comment Wednesday evening.
