Police Search For Two Men Who Kidnapped And Raped A Woman, HU Med Students Rally At DC City Council Meeting

Police search for two men who kidnapped and raped a woman …

Prince George’s County and DC Police are looking for two armed men who allegedly forced a young woman at gunpoint into a car and then raped her.

The alleged incident happened Monday morning shortly after she left out of the Naylor Road Metro Station. The victim who was grabbed on Curtis Drive was raped repeatedly in the vehicle as they drove around Prince George’s County and in Southeast DC.

At one point, police say they used her ATM card to get money at an ATM machine at a convenience store on Good Hope Road in S.E. Authorities say the victim was raped again and let go. Police have obtained a security picture of one of the suspects and they also have footage of the vehicle used. There is a $25,000 reward being offered in this case.

DC City Council set to vote on several critical bills and one of the measures has Howard University medical students very concerned.

Howard University medical students were front and center Tuesday as D.C. lawmakers prepare to approve legislation that would pave the way for an exclusive deal with George Washington University for a new hospital on St. Elizabeth’s campus. While Howard supports a new East End hospital, school officials say the agreement currently proposed would exclude Howard’s faculty physicians; medical students and residents; nursing; allied health; pharmacy; and, dentistry students from providing services and receiving training at the new hospital.  Dozens of HU medical students are sitting inside the council chambers with hopes of getting lawmakers to at least approve an amendment by Ward 8 Councilmember Trayon White.  That amendment would include Howard University in the East End hospital plan.
