‘Knockout Game’ Likely Claims Latest Washington Victim

WJLA (Washington), December 15, 2013

A Northwest Washington man believed that he may have been the latest victim of the so-called “Knockout Game” after he was brutally assaulted late Friday night.

The Bloomingdale man, who did not want to be identified, says he was walking home Friday night near the corner of First and W streets Northwest when a group of at least 10 people attacked him.

As he walked by the group, they initially let him pass without incident, he says. However, just a moment later, they pounded. {snip}

“I feel violated walking down the street and expecting someone to come after me or attack me,” he said. “After the punch, I remember chuckling.”
