The first thing he sees is a fight. Two men, struggling, far down in the alley directly across from his window, on the other side of Nineteenth Street. The men are too far away to see clearly, but they look young, maybe even teenagers. The one nearest Russell is smaller and wears a dark sweater. The other man lunges at him once, then again, and they lurch together into the brick wall on one side of the alley. Then the taller man lunges again with a quick flicking motion of his right arm, and the smaller one doubles over and falls to the pavement. The taller man is long-legged, almost gangly, and has a narrow, long head. He turns and runs the other way, and then Russell can see that he's wearing a red and gold Redskins jacket.
