On Wednesday night, a 37-year-old woman was hit from behind as she was walking in the 5600 block of 9th Street Northwest.
“I am relieved that MPD has made an arrest in these terrifying crimes,” said D.C. Council member Muriel Bowser, who represents the area where the attacks took place. “Petworth can take comfort, today, that their neighborhood is secure. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.”
