Five people were reportedly stabbed inside McFadden’s early Saturday morning, according to the Metropolitan Police Department.

The suspect, a 5’7″ or 5’8″ black man, was wearing a plaid shirt, blue or black pants and a tan trench coat, according to a GW alert sent at about 2:30 a.m. The suspect was last seen heading east on Pennsylvania Avenue, according to the alert.

All five victims were sent to a hospital, and the suspect remains at large, said MPD public information officer Hugh Carew. He said he did not know which hospital provided the victims treatment and he did not have an update on their condition.

University spokeswoman Maralee Csellar did not immediately return a request for comment about whether any of the victims are affiliated with GW.
