“Riccardi Clothier (1300 Connecticut) appears to be going out of business. It looks like a nice store, so I’m sad for them. But I will not miss the TERRIFYING moving advertising mannequin they have out front. Seriously, this thing scares the heck out of me, and I see it at least twice a day. I’ve never understood it, since it doesn’t seem in line with the pleasant professional style of the store.”
Ed. Note: Riccardi Clothier moved from Georgetown to southern Dupont back in 2012.
“First Degree Burglary
2100 – 2199 BLOCK OF 1ST STREET NW
The Complainant reports as she walking home, she observed an unknown male following her. As she entered her basement apartment she locked her doors behind her. Shortly thereafter she heard a crashing noise and went to investigate and found the unknown male standing in her apartment. Without provocation the unknown male grabbed at her and asked her for money. As the Complainant screamed to occupants upstairs, she was struck about the face with a wooden object and kicked about the body. Hearing the commotion, the occupants in the above apartment decended into the basement apartment, causing the unknown male to exit the apartment without obtaining anything. An area canvass by MPD was conducted without success. Look-out for a Black Male, dark complexioned, 5’8 in height, wearing a green coat, blue jeans, red hats and carrying a wooden stick.
Anyone with information in connection to this offense can anonymously call 202) 727-9099.”
