(Updated at 11:14 a.m. on Friday) An assailant slashed a man with a knife after an argument broke out in Logan Circle Thursday afternoon, police said.
The attack happened at Vermont Avenue and N Street NW at about 3:30 p.m yesterday. The victim was conscious after the assault.
Authorities haven’t released a description of a suspect.
Carl Shawen, a Pepco worker who witnessed the attack, said he saw two men arguing near the intersection.
According to the police report, the argument began when the suspect asked the victim for a cigarette. When the victim said he didn’t have any cigarettes, the suspect then pulled out a knife and slashed the victim on his left wrist.
Shawen said that after the attack, he saw the victim walk toward The Mondrian apartment building at 1200 N St. NW, where he was taken away in an ambulance. The other man wandered off toward the Luther Place Memorial Church at 1226 Vermont Ave. NW, added Shawen.
