D.C. Officer Attacked by Ax-Wielding Man

October 31, 2014  | 

D.C. Police say they are looking for a man who attacked a police officer with an ax early Friday.

The incident happened around 3 a.m. near 13th and Perry streets NE when the D.C. police officer was approached by a man who had an ax, authorities said.

“Unprovoked, the man armed with an ax did swing at the officer,” Araz Alali, a spokesman for the D.C. Police department told the Washington Post. “He ambushed a police officer. This was not direct enforcement. This was completely unprovoked.”

The man fled on foot westbound in an alley towards the 1200 block of Quincy Street NE, police said. The ax was recovered and was “being processed,” Alali said.

Full details of the injuries were not immediately given, but police described them as not life-threatening.

Im sure that a second Axe attack in a week (NY, now DC) has nothing to do with Terrorism, right Obama and Holder? My guess this subject is a recent "convert" to Islam, the religion of "Peace". Apparently it may be the religion of "piece" if they continue to use axes. Face facts the terrorists are using the internet to get crazies to do stuff like this, yes crazy and probably not real dedicated to Islam but none the less terrorism. If these attacks were done in such a short time by Christians there would be hell to pay from the Lib press!

Only in Obama & Holder's world could the United States suffer numerous terrorist attacks , with hatred for L.E. rising at staggering levels, & citizens told not to worry about Ebola from Africa. These schleps are trying to kill the true patriotic American Citizenry.

I hope im wrong, but it looks like things are going south really quick. i think we are definately going to see more attacks like this. Not only against l.e. but against the public as well.
