Preview from the December 2011/January 2012 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:
An urban camping excursion took a violent turn near midnight on Saturday, November 12, after a married couple who live near the National Cathedral decided to spend the night in Bryce Park, the triangular green space bordered by Wisconsin Ave., Massachusetts Ave., and Garfield St. The husband had brought two knives with him, supposedly for the couple’s protection, the wife told police. But while the two were lying down, the husband told his wife, “One of us has to die” and attacked her, court documents state. Though suffering from multiple stab wounds and a punctured lung, the wife ran into the street and flagged down a cab driver, who called 911. The husband remained on the scene, though he would not give his name to police. He was arrested and charged with assault with intent to kill. A preliminary hearing in his case was scheduled for November 28. This column does not typically identify assault victims; the husband’s name is being withheld to protect the identity of his wife.
