Assault at Montgomery Mall in Bethesda

Montgomery County police were called to Westfield Montgomery Mall in Bethesda Wednesday night, December 20, 2023, after a 2nd-degree assault was reported there. The assault was reported at the mall at 9:40 PM Wednesday. This is the fifth assault reported at the mall this year, and the first since October 20. The mall is now virtually assured of ending the year with a major reduction in violent crime in 2023, as 12 assaults were reported there in 2022. This improvement may be attributed to Montgomery County police having opened a "resource room" at the popular retail center during last year's upward trend of assaults.


  1. So, assaults down? That’s good. But what kind of assaults were the 5? How about zero?

  2. Use pepper spray ask security guard to walk you out at the mall before you leave call police to walk you out before you leave to feel safe

  3. What is the description of the suspect was it a boy or girl that got assaulted
