A Fort Washington man was convicted in the beating and robbery of a young Capitol Hill father, officials said.

Tommy Branch was found guilty Wednesday in D.C. Superior Court of the attack on Thomas "TC" Maslin.

In August 2012, Maslin was assaulted and robbed after he attended a Washington Nationals game and visited a bar. Police said he was found unconscious on a porch on the 700 block of North Carolina Avenue SE.

Branch is the second person to be convicted for the incident. Another man -- Michael Moore, of Landover -- previously pleaded guilty to his role in the attack and testified against Branch during his trial. A third suspect in the incident, Sunny Kuti, of the District, is awaiting trial.
