MPD not investigating hate crimes because victims won’t talk to police, Lt. Hedgecock says
At tonight’s Advisory Neighborhood Commission meeting (which Vox will have a full write-up of tomorrow), Lieutenant John Hedgecock said that Metropolitan Police Department was not investigating either of the recent hate crimes because the victims would not talk to police. Hedgecock said both victims were contacted multiple times by MPD, including by the Gay and Lesbian Liason Unit.
Hedgecock added that the description of the assailant involved in Sunday’s assault is vague, because the victim could not remember much about the attack.
“He had really no recollection of what had occurred,” Hedgecock said.
University spokesperson Andy Pino said University had referred the crimes to MPD and did not know the status of any investigations.
