Yesterday around 10 am on the 5100 block of N Capitol St, NW my wife was giving our 8 month old a bath when someone rang the door bell 3 times, she disregarded it thinking it was a voter visit or Jehova’s witnesses. While she was upstairs someone opened our screen door in the front of the house and jumped through the window, grabbed the keys off of the kitchen counter and attempted to steal the car parked out back. Luckily the person wasn’t successful because it didn’t seem like they knew how to drive a stick. They backed the car out in the alley, could get it going and fled.
My wife didn’t realize what happened until she came downstairs and saw the back door open and the car out of its spot and in the alley. The police came and fingerprints were taken.
