From MPD:

At approximately 8:10 yesterday evening, an individual was approached by 2 Black males in front of 508 Kenyon Street. One of the males produced a gun and advised the victim “Don’t Scream” then continued to rob the victim of several items and fled on foot. The victim was not injured.

Moments later, the Robbery Tact Unit, hearing the description of the subjects, responded to Bruce Monroe Park during their canvass for the suspects and found a subject matching the description provided by the victim. After further investigation, it was revealed that the subject stopped was identified as one of the subjects involved in the robbery and subsequently was placed under arrest. The other subject is still out and described as B/M early 20’s 5’9” wearing a grey T-shirt, black shorts and black skullcap. Anyone with information relating to this robbery is encouraged to call (202) 727-9099 or email me directly at [email protected]

  • Bruce Monroe Park when it first opened was closed to the public after dark. Why isn’t that still the case?

  • was that 810am or 810pm….just wondering as I walk my dog very early in that neighborhood…..

  • The bars have been cut out of the fence where Bruce Monroe Park meets up with the alley behind the 700 block of Irving/Columbia Road. Drug sealers/buyers/muggers use this park after dark as their HQ.

    I have reported this problem to the DC Gov several times over the past few months, requesting that it be fixed but still no action. The park is littered with plastic drug baggies and there have been numerous muggings in the area, some violent, where the perps escape through the alley. It may be time to involve Jim Graham.

  • do people really not know this? they get their guns from maryland. an overwhelming amount come from legal purchases from just a coulpe of gun stores.

    why are we so lax? well, it’s hard to convict when people, even victims, are resistant to testify, when smart people are so keen to get out of jury duty, and an overcrowded jail.
