Sexual assault outside D.C. bar

By Erica Johnston

D.C. police are investigating the sexual assault of a woman in an alley near a Foggy Bottom bar early Wednesday, officials said.

The 21-year-old victim left a bar near 23rd Street NW and Pennsylvania Avenue, and was attacked shortly before 2 a.m., police said. She was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Police described the assailant as an Hispanic male, between 25 and 35 years old, about 6 feet tall and about 200 pounds. Police said he had short, black hair and wore a black jacket.

Anyone with information is asked to call 202-727-9099.

**************************************************************************************No, Real Sidler, you are wrong. The facts are that some people commit crimes out of, and beyond their numerical representation in society.

Shandon1'2 statement is factual. Factual statements are NOT racial stereotypes, except in the minds of the Politically Correct Brainwashed.

Wake up to the reality of real life.
