A Capitol Hill man who suffered traumatic brain injuries when he was beaten during a robbery this summer was struck with a bat and a BB gun, a Metropolitan Police Department detective said Friday at a preliminary hearing for two men charged in connection with the crime.
Three people seen inside a car that pulled up to a Southeast D.C. gas station attempted to use the credit card of a man who had been savagely attacked and left unconscious on Capitol Hill only 30 minutes earlier, the man's wife said Tuesday.
"I think this will happen again if we don't find out who is responsible here," Abigail Maslin told reporters outside the MedStar Washington Hospital Center, where her husband remained hospitalized Tuesday. "It is crucial, absolutely critical that people watch the video and we find out who is responsible for this."
"I think the scary part of all that is imagining how much time went past before he eventually got help," Mrs. Maslin said.
