D.C. man charged with assault and battery after brawl at William Ramsay Recreation Center

A  25-year-old Washington, D.C. man was arrested on March 26 (Saturday) after an assault by mob at William Ramsay Recreation Center (5650 Sanger Avenue).

At around 9:15 p.m., the city’s Department of Emergency Communications got a call of multiple males fighting in the gym of the West End recreation center. When police arrived, a white Chrysler Sebring with Virginia tags attempted to drive away from the scene at “a high rate of speed,” according to a search warrant affidavit. Responding officers blocked the Sebring’s exit and its occupants were detained and questioned.

The victims in the recreation center told police that they went into the gymnasium to play basketball, and started a game with other males and a fight erupted. During the fight, an iPhone 12 Max belonging to a victim was reportedly stolen and not recovered.

All of the occupants of the Sebring were released, except Kennieth Robinson, of D.C., who was arrested and charged with assault and battery. Police said that video surveillance showed that Robinson “was clearly visible as being the main culprit in the assault.”

Robinson was arrested and charged with assault and battery and released March 27 on $2,000 bond. He goes to court on April 11.
