Student assaulted in Georgetown

A junior was allegedly assaulted Tuesday evening after visiting two bars in Georgetown, according to Metropolitan Police Department documents.

The student was assaulted at the 900 block of 23rd Street, according to an MPD report, and sustained a laceration to the back of his head, “abrasions” to both knees and a “knot” on his forehead.

University Police Department Chief Kevin Hay said the student was at McFadden’s Restaurant and Saloon just off campus and Third Edition, a Georgetown bar, earlier that night.

“The victim could not remember any details of the assault other than it happened somewhere in Georgetown,” according to an e-mail sent out to an MPD community listserv.

The victim arrived at his room covered in blood at about 10 p.m. and told his roommate he was “jumped somewhere in Georgetown.” He was subsequently transported to GW Hospital, according to the e-mail.

There are currently no suspects for the assault but the case is open, according to the report. The victim did not respond to a request for comment.
