Shortly before midnight on May 29, 2011, MPD officers responded to an “Investigate the Trouble” call for a woman screaming in the 1300 block of Taylor Street, NW. The officers located the complainant, who informed them while walking to her house, a white male approached her and demanded her money. The complainant replied that she didn’t have any, so the suspect knocked her to the ground and then fled into an alley. A lookout was provided for the suspect and Officer A. Figuereo located someone matching the description in an alley in the block. An identification procedure was conducted and both the complainant and a witness positively identified the subject stopped as the one who attempted to rob the complainant. The suspect was then placed under arrest for Assault with the Intent to Rob.
