Teen stabbed on Metrobus

By Clarence Williams


Updates to correct attribution:

A teenage male was stabbed and seriously wounded late Tuesday night on a Metrobus in Southeast Washington, authorities said.

The stabbing occurred about 10:45 p.m. in the 2200 block of Pomeroy Road SE, a stop on the W6 route. The victim was stabbed in the abdomen, said Lisa Farbstein, a Metro spokeswoman.

Officer Hugh Carew, a spokesman for the D.C. police, said the victim, who is a juvenile, was seriously injured, but his life did not appear to be endangered.


After the stabbing, the bus stopped near Fort Stanton Park and several people "hustled off," Carew said. The teen then made his way to the driver and said he had been stabbed.

He was taken to George Washington University Hospital by ambulance.

Don't go into P.G. or D.C. It's a jungle in either of them.

Actually, Cool Chilly, DC is NOT a jungle. I'm a black male who has lived in the city since 1989 and have never had any problems.

My part of PG isn't a jungle either: been living here for over a decade and haven't had one problem. Melanin-challenged NDN guy in a wheelchair (for what it's worth).

There are some NEIGHBORHOODS in DC and PG that one should stay out of... just sayin'

Vicious and violent culture?? What culture are you referring to? Are you saying that DC has a vicious and violent culture? If so, you must live there correct?
