(Updated: 4:40 p.m.): Bethesda District Police Commander Capt. David Falcinelli says a fight over beer between two homeless men led to a stabbing Friday afternoon on the Capital Crescent Trail.
Falcinelli sent out a notice that said one adult male was being transported to the hospital for treatment. Another homeless man was in custody, Faclinelli said.
The call came in just after 3:30 p.m. on Friday. The stabbing occurred on the section of the trail near Bethesda and Woodmont Avenues. Police apprehended the suspect near the old Bethesda Post Office, where one tipster says homeless are known to live in sheds behind the soon-to-be-redeveloped property.
The incident is not related to a sexual assault that occurred on the Trail on Sunday evening, on the section between Massachusetts Avenue and MacArthur Boulevard, Falcinelli said.
