From the March 2011 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:
Two nighttime scuffles on the Avenue in January both led to bloodshed. On January 22, a man suffered a small laceration on his nose during an assault outside of Good Guys (2311 Wisconsin Ave.), according to police. At about 3 a.m., the victim and a group of his friends were walking down the street. Five men pulled up in a silver Honda and started yelling catcalls at a woman in the group. Then a man got out of the car, ran toward the male victim, and punched him in the face. The assailant got back into the car and was last seen fleeing north on Wisconsin Ave. The victim refused medical treatment at the scene.
Then on January 23 around 10 p.m., two men got into a fistfight outside 2241 Wisconsin Ave., the former MyerEmco space. During the fight, a woman drove up, took a tennis racket out of her car, and began hitting one of the fighters on the head with it, according to a police report. At some point, that man’s coat and cell phone were stolen, and they ended up in the woman’s car. “We have your stuff, so what now?” the woman, Yuliya Reckenwald, reportedly asked him. When police arrived, the stolen items were returned to the victim, who was transported to the hospital and got five staples in the top of his head. Reckenwald was arrested and charged with assault with a dangerous weapon (the tennis racket). The case awaits grand jury action. UPDATE: In September, the assault case against Reckenwald was dismissed because prosecutors decided not to pursue it. A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office declined to comment on the reason.
