From @DCPoliceDept:


Update from MPD:

“This morning [Wed.], at about 9:30 AM, a woman was operating her vehicle in the 700 block of 13th St NE when she stopped at a traffic light. At that time her vehicle was “bumped” from the rear by another vehicle, described as a blue Infinity 4-door. The woman got out of her vehicle to inspect the damage and left her door open, keys in the ignition and motor running. The passenger of the striking vehicle, exited and came around as if to inspect the damage and also spoke with the victim. While the victim was looking at the damage, the suspect ran and jumped into the driver’s seat and drove off with the victim’s car.

The suspect is described as a black male in his 20s, 5’10” – 6′, average build, dark complexion, short hair, wearing a blue shirt and blue jeans. The driver of the blue Infinity is only described as a black male with dread locks.

The victim’s stolen vehicle is a 2011 Dodge Charger, gray, 4-door, with VA tags XGY-2244.

The offense is under investigation by the First District Detectives Office, 202-299-2025. Anyone with information can also call 202-727-9088 or send an anonymous text to 50411.”

  • This is so fucked up.
    I’m so sorry for this woman.

    As a word of caution, please never ever leave your keys in your car when you get out.
    Auto theft happens at gas stations very frequently because of this.
