Hopefully this is the same guy – MPD caught a suspect on Friday night:

“Last night [Friday] around 9:45 pm a lone subject committed 2 unarmed robberies near 9th and U Streets, Northwest.

Third District Patrol Officers who were assigned to the area quickly jumped in to action and apprehended the suspect near where the offenses occurred.

Due to the quick action of the officers a violent offender was arrested.”

  • I will call the police to see if it is one of the same people. I hope so! There were actually two guys who mugged me.

    please let us know what they say! If you are the one who got mugged on 11th and Florida, this happened right outside of my house. scary.

  • Thank you for letting us know CHG. I was very keenly aware as I walked about in Petworth last night.

    I wish you the best.

  • what time of the night were you mugged? how did it go down? details would be helpful, thanks

  • My roommate was also mugged in this area-on 9th and T. It happened around midnight on Thursday, January 20. The four guys that were involved were caught by the police a couple of hours later only a block away, and I believe the two that committed the robbery are being charged.

    Bottom line–stay safe and AWARE of your surroundings.

  • Hey all-spoke with the detective today and it was not the same person who was arrested on Friday.
