The stabbing happened on the 100 block of D Street NW about 5 p.m. Wednesday. The area is about a block south of the Georgetown University Law Center.

Police stopped someone who matched the description of the attacker about 30 minutes after the assault. But it wasn’t immediately clear if they arrested the individual.

    Exactly how large is the geographic area of Capitol Hill now? As tragic as this is, I do not see G’town Law as a part of Capitol Hill.

      G’town Law, not Georgetown proper. 100 block of D St NW is only about 3 blocks from the Capitol.

        You’re welcome. Yes, I know where the school is but it is not Capitol Hill. Unless the realtors have once again redefined a neighborhood geography. If you are basing the boundary on radius then a crime committed by the Air & Space Museum can be named Capitol Hill as well. Happy to be wrong, just wondering out loud.

    Those rowdy Hill staffers. Incorrigible.
