Woman attacked near King Street Metro station

A 22-year-old woman was sexually assaulted just after midnight Tuesday morning a few blocks east of the King Street metro station in Alexandria, city police said.

They said the woman, who was walking home from the station, was in the 1600 block of Duke Street when she was grabbed by a man who showed a box cutter. He forced her into an alley and sexually assaulted her, they said.

Woman attacked by King Street Metro station

- seriously? The station attacked her? Journalism 101 - an inanimate object can't attack anyone. Woman assaulted near Metro station.

Greeeeeat. Looks like I'm making sure I walk back to Metro with classmates from here on...there are regular evening classes on a GWU campus near there.

Hmmm... The WP left out a description of the suspect which the Alex PD mentioned in their press release. The suspect is a black male with acne. I'm sure this was just an oversight.

Yeah, sure it was an oversight.

If the rapist were white, WaPo would have given a full description of him.

@checkered1

its not white peoples fault that black people seem to resemble one another more so than whites do. also it was dark outside so giving a description of a black male in the dark presents a real challenge. not trying to be offensive, just saying.
