Downtown stabbing leaves man wounded

A man was stabbed in downtown Washington, near the intersection of 13th Street and New York Avenue NW, on Saturday afternoon. He suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to a hospital, authorities said.

Police are looking for a black male assailant who was wearing a blue jacket and black pants and walked with a limp.

Officers said they did not know what precipitated the attack, which took place at about 4 p.m. in front of several witnesses.

Woman loses cat at Dulles Airport

Presumably, it was a decent return flight home to the United States earlier this week on Lufthansa. The German airline was just ranked as Europe’s best airline by one leading aviation research firm.


But maybe Lufthansa is not the greatest for cats?


On Friday, a woman whose Facebook account gives her name as “Molly Jean” reported to Facebook friends that she had just returned home after four years of being “stationed” in Germany “only to lose my cat, Milo, at Dulles airport, D.C., somewhere during transport between the gate and baggage claim.” People on Twitter have taken up her cause with the hashtag #MiloIsMissing and, of course, cat emoji and photos of Milo, a tabby-and-white cat with green eyes and a reddish nose.

Jean could not be reached Saturday.

A spokeswoman for Dulles International Airport said Saturday that airport officials were in touch with Jean and are “working to try and find the cat.” A Lufthansa social media team member told The Washington Post on Twitter that the airline is “handling this situation with the highest priority.”


In her Facebook post, Jean praised Dulles’s and Lufthansa’s efforts. “If you know me even casually, you know how much [I] love my little guy,” she wrote. “But it breaks my heart that I can’t help look for him since he’s probably hiding near the tarmac.”
