Breaking: Black Male in Trench Coat Stabs Five People at Popular DC Restaurant

A black male entered McFadden’s Restaurant and Saloon on Saturday night and stabbed five people before fleeing the popular establishment.
There were reports of blood all over the floor.

Police are still searching for the suspect who reportedly did not know the people he attacked.

The Washington Post reported:

Five people were stabbed early Saturday inside a popular Northwest Washington restaurant and bar near George Washington University, and a man wearing a tan trench coat was being sought, police said.

At least two of the victims were seriously injured, but all are expected to survive the attack, which took place about 12:30 a.m. inside McFadden’s Restaurant and Saloon at 2401 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, said Officer Hugh Carew, a D.C. police spokesman.

Police issued a lookout for a black man of medium height, wearing a trench coat, plaid shirt and black or blue jeans.

The assailant eluded a police search and was last seen heading east on Pennsylvania Avenue, GWU police said in a campus safety alert issued about 2:30 a.m.

McFadden’s, a popular nightspot whose Web site calls it “DC’s Best Party Bar,” was closed during its regular lunch and dinner hours Saturday. As night fell, the only commotion came from a local television news crew.

The bar and restaurant is eight blocks from the White House.
