A woman was arrested yesterday by Secret Service officers after allegedly stabbing another woman behind the counter of a restaurant near the White House, say D.C. Police.
Police say Jaqueline Aldama, 31, approached a woman behind the counter of a restaurant on the 700 block of 17th Street NW around 6:10 p.m. yesterday. Aldama then pulled out a knife and allegedly began to stab the woman repeatedly. When the victim tried to run, police say Aldama followed and continued to stab her. The victim then fell to the ground and passed out.

According to police, Aldama was arrested in or outside of the McDonald’s at 750 17th Street NW.
