A group of men connected to at least two unsolved summer attacks in the District might include suspects in an August robbery and attack that left a Capitol Hill man in a coma for days, law enforcement officials said Friday.
The two officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because those investigations are ongoing, would not detail the unsolved incidents. But the group that police believe may be responsible could include at least two of the three men charged in the beating and robbery of Thomas C. Maslin and another robbery in Adams Morgan that same day, they said.
The other members of the group, the officials said, are still being sought.
The news came as Tommy T. Branch, 21, of Fort Washington, and Sunny Kuti, 17, of Southeast, charged in the Aug. 18 attack on Maslin near Eastern Market, were in D.C. Superior Court for a preliminary hearing. Michael Moore, 18, of Landover, waived his right to a preliminary hearing.
