WaPo, 3 women are attacked, beaten and bound at 8:00 AM by a flagpole as they put a wreath down...WaPo..what the heck happened? Is this it?

Was the assailant cursing, politically motivated, did he rape, did he spout insanities about Republicans or the US Military, did he have a long gun (had he been shooting at say the Pentagon and recruitment centers for instance).

Just thinking...you know the tag number and vehicle description MIGHT be useful. As would a general description of the suspect...
