From MPD:

“On today’s date [Tuesday], at approximately 1:35PM, First District personnel were dispatched to the 800 block of C Street, SE, in reference to a Burglary in Progress. Within minutes of receiving the call, the officers responded to the location, and apprehended a subject inside the bathroom of the residence.

The subject was then placed under arrest and charged accordingly.”


“Just after 1:30 pm today [Tuesday], units were called to Eastern Ave and Quackenbos St NE for an assault. Responding officers quickly determined a complainant had been assaulted and robbed of property in the 6100 blk of Eastern Ave NE. The suspects fled to a residence in the area.

During the on scene investigation, the suspects were located and positively identified as the subjects that committed the robbery. Both suspects, adult males, were placed under arrest for robbery and one of the suspects was found to have an outstanding warrant for an unrelated matter.”


“Last night [Monday], just before midnight, units received a call for a robbery at Georgia Ave and Randolph St NW. Upon arrival, a complainant reported after parking his vehicle, he was approached by two suspects one of which brandished a gun. The suspects demanded property of the complainant to which the complainant complied. The suspects then attempted to steal the complainants vehicle but were unsuccessful. The suspects fled the scene on foot.

After responding officers broadcast a lookout, two subjects were observed several blocks away. One subject stopped as police approached, the other fled on foot. After a brief foot pursuit, the fleeing subject was apprehended.

After further investigation, it was determined these subjects were responsible for the robbery/carjacking. As the investigation into this matter continued, earlier today, a search warrant was executed at a residence which yielded a gun.

Both suspects, adult males, have been arrested and charged with armed robbery/carjacking.”

  • Fantastic to hear about the Petworth incident as I routinely park on that block if I’m returning late from work.

  • Good riddance, let’s get those criminals off the street. Let’s hope they’re 18 or older.

  • “The suspects then attempted to steal the complainants vehicle but were unsuccessful”

    Let me guess: the car was a stick. A manual transmission continues to be the best and cheapest form of car theft prevention in the city!
