Two women sexually assaulted, robbed in Northeast
Police in D.C. are investigating the sexual assault of two women in Northeast.
Just before 1 a.m. Saturday, the victims were walking down 48th Street NE when two vehicles pulled up beside them. The women were attacked by two men from two different groups, sexually assaulted and robbed of their phones and coats.
Northeast resident Ali Shaeed said, "I'm knocked out right now...my neighborhood is cool...we get along ...We all know each other...
Neighbors were stunned by news of the attack.
"I'm scared...I have kids...and I'm very concerned...and since I walk home at night from the Metro...it's even more alarming," resident Nichelle Sallie said.
Neighbor Imani Damali added, "No one has notified us of anything, and I think that should have been done."
Investigators don't have much of a description to go on in the case. One of the vehicles was red, and each vehicle had four black men inside.
Anyone with information is asked to call police.
