Stabbing Reported in Hill East
A teen stabbed someone in Hill East earlier this week, police said today.
The stabbing happened on the 1700 block of Massachusetts Avenue SE about 9 p.m. Monday. The area is about two blocks west of the Stadium-Armory Metro station.
The victim was arguing with three teenage boys before the attack, according to authorities. One of the teens then stabbed the victim.
The victim was treated and released from a local hospital. Police haven’t released detailed descriptions of the suspects.
A man who sought to steal deodorant from an H Street corridor pharmacy ran off with an employee’s iPhone that had a photo of him this week, too, police said.
The robbery occurred in the CVS at 645 H St. NE about 10:45 a.m. Tuesday.
The man was putting deodorant in his pocket at the store when an employee there told a co-worker to call police, according to authorities. The worker dispatched to call police used her cellphone to take a photo of the man instead.
He then snatched the phone, dropped the deodorant and ran from the store.
Police haven’t released a description of the suspect.
