D.C. police see men in series of assaults

D.C. police say they have linked four men to a series of robberies over a two-hour span late Friday and early Saturday in Northeast that targeted women and included an attempted abduction and a sexual assault.

Authorities offered only a scant description of the men — in their late teens or early 20s in an older model red Nissan Maxima. Police released no specific details of the attacks.

D.C. Police Cmdr. George Kucik, who heads the criminal investigation division, said that having “four attacks in a confined geographic area in a short period of time is why we believe they may be linked.”

Kucik said detectives have few leads and little information. Of the abduction, he would only that the victim “was able to escape.”

Police said the first incident occurred Friday about 11:45 p.m. in the 300 block of 63rd St., NE; the second 15 minutes later in the 4700 block of Minnesota Ave., NE; another on Saturday at 12:40 a.m. in the 4400 block of Gault Place; and the last about 1 a.m. in the 4800 block of Sheriff Road.

The assaults occurred just north of the Maryland line, near the Capitol Heights Metro stop.
