    The search is on for a woman in a white dress after a quadruple stabbing inside a nightclub in Adams Morgan. It happened as people were ringing in the New Year at "District" on 18th Street. News4's Pat Collins has more. (Published Wednesday, Jan 1, 2014)

    D.C. Police are investigating a stabbing that left five people with minor injuries during the early morning hours of New Year's Day.

    Crews were dispatched to the 2400 block of 18th Street NW just before 4 a.m. Wednesday.

    Police say four people were stabbed inside the District Nightclub in the city's Adams Morgan neighborhood, and another was found outside.

    All five individuals -- four men and one woman-- are expected to be ok.

    Police believe the attacks stemmed from a fight on the second floor of the club, which hosted a New Year's Eve party that evening.

    The suspect is described as a woman between 20 and 25 years old, standing at approximately 5'3" with a facial piercing. At the time of the incident, she was wearing a pearl white dress with blood stains. 

    The club's lawyer, Richard H. Bianco, released the following statement Wednesday afternoon:

    "On behalf of the ownership and staff of District, our hearts go out to those who were injured by the criminal acts committed early this morning. We would like to express deepest sympathy to the victims and their families and we wish them a speedy recovery. My clients would additionally like to express their support for the men and women of the MPD who are tasked with the responsibility of bringing the perpetrators of these crimes to justice. The partners and employees of District have and will continue to do everything in their power to cooperate with MPD in their investigation and ultimate apprehension of those responsible."
