Metro police looking for four men involved in New Year’s Day assault


Metro Transit Police are looking for four men who allegedly stabbed one woman and hit another in the head and back in the early morning hours of New Year’s Day aboard a Metro bus in Southeast Washington. 

The men are described as being between ages 19 and 22, and Metro released pictures from a video on the bus showing what the men look like.

The incident happened about 2:20 a.m. Tuesday on the Route 93 bus headed to the Congress Heights station.

According to Metro Transit Police, the men boarded the bus in Adams Morgan, near 18th Street and Columbia Road NW. Later, two women got aboard at Eighth and G streets NW. 

The women got into a verbal argument with one of the suspects and it escalated into a fight between the women and the men, police said.

Both of the women were taken to a hospital. The men fled northbound on Martin Luther King Avenue.

Anyone with information is asked to call Metro Transit Police at 202-962-2121.
