A man found severely beaten on the doorstep of an Eastern Market home on Saturday is in a coma, friends said.

TC Maslin, the husband of Brent Elementary School teacher Abby Maslin, underwent brain surgery, school principal Peter Young said in a statement on the school’s website.

“Abby has asked that everybody pray for her and TC, it is hour by hour now,” Mr. Young stated, adding that a collection has been taken up to help with medical costs.

According to reports, Mr. Maslin, 29, was walking home early Saturday morning when he was attacked. He was found at about 8:30 a.m. on a porch in the 700 block of North Carolina Avenue Southeast.

D.C. police said they are treating the incident as an aggravated assault.

The area is blocks from the popular Capitol Hill location where shops and restaurants draw thousands of people on the weekends.
