BETHESDA, Md. (AP) — Police are investigating a stabbing on one of the Washington area’s most popular walking and bicycling paths in Bethesda.

Police say it happened last Friday afternoon on the Capital Crescent Trail and apparently involved people who knew each other. It did not appear to have any connection to a resent sexual assault on the same trail in Bethesda.

The latest incident occurred near a tunnel where other assaults and robberies have occurred this year.
