MPD confirms that officers responded to the 1700 block of New Hampshire Avenue NW at about 3:20 p.m. Wednesday after a woman reported that she was sexually assaulted.

A witness told police they could hear a woman screaming and, then, right after, they saw a man ride away on his bike.

Police say the suspect has a mustache and was wearing an orange t-shirt, shorts, and a black baseball cap.

Concerned for others safety, a local non-profit called Collective Action for Safe Spaces is also warning people about the incident on its Facebook page.
