The reader sends the above video from MPD:

“The Metropolitan Police Department seeks the public’s assistance in identifying two persons of interest in reference to an Robbery–Snatch which occurred at a convenience store located in the Unit block of Logan Circle, NW, on Sunday, September 15, 2013 at approximately 2:20 AM. The subjects were captured by the store’s surveillance camera and are described as follows:

S-1: Black male, 19-20 years of age, 6’1”, thin build, with short black hair and medium complexion. He was wearing a black t-shirt with the “Superman” logo.

S-2: Black male, 19-20 years of age, 5’11”, thin build, with crew cut hair style. He was wearing a dark gray zipped-up shirt and jeans.”


And a robbery alert on Capitol Hill from MPD:

“There have been two robberies the past two nights. There are similarities in the two crimes and the detectives are coordinating their investigations. This evening First District Officers will be in the area of 10th & G Streets SE conducting a door-to-door canvass seeking to identify possible witnesses in support of the investigations.

On Tuesday September 17, 2013, at approximately 10:00 pm, an suspect approached an adult male victim in the 1300 block of PA Ave SE, displayed a handgun and robbed the victim of his property. The suspect is described as a black male, mid 30s, 5’10” in height, medium build, wearing all black clothing and armed with a dark colored handgun.

On Wednesday September 18, 2013, at approximately 9:35 pm, an unknown male approached an adult female victim in the 1000 block of G Street SE, produced a handgun and demanded the victim’s possessions. The suspect then instructed the victim to accompany him in a vehicle to the 600 block of Pennsylvania Avenue, SE to an ATM, where the victim was instructed to withdraw cash. The suspect subsequently released the victim in the area of 10th & G Streets SE and made good his escape. The suspect is described as a black male, medium to dark complexion, early to mid-thirties, 5’8” to 5’9” in height, slim build, dressed in all brown clothing and armed with a dark color handgun.

Additional patrol units have been deployed to the area of these offenses during the target hours and anyone who observes suspicious activity or persons is asked to call 911 immediately. Anyone with information related to the investigations can call the police on (202) 727-9099 or anonymous information may be submitted to the department’s TEXT TIP LINE by text messaging to 50411.”

  • It should be easy enough to find a man with three legs.

  • Superman, how could you!

  • “He was wearing a dark gray zipped-up shirt and jeans.”

    Good description. Except he appears to be wearing a black zipped-up shirt and camouflage pants.

    • Two different suspects (S-1 and S-2). The guy in grey is behind Superman in the photo.

      • Sorry, it’s too early, I didn’t realize that was video. I think you’re right.
        Though honestly, even 5 minutes after the crime a description of their clothes is irrelevant (have you seen the phone snatchers just throw their sweatshirts in the trash on the way out?).

        • I’m sure it happens sometimes that someone remembers seeing them before the incident too, so unless they’re changing immediately before and immediately after it could be useful info.

        • True, but you never know–some criminals aren’t the sharpest tools in the shed. I remember a while back, in my former city, a guy notoriously got busted in the act of robbing a bank because a teller tripped the silent alarm the minute he walked into the place. What tipped her off instantly? He was wearing the same pants he wore to rob another bank a few days prior–and yes, the pants were covered in dye-pack spatter. (I mean, you’d think if you’d *robbed a bank* you could use a little of that cash to spring for a fresh pair of pants…but maybe not.)

      • But that second guy is also wearing camo pants, not jeans…

  • Where is there a convenience store on the unit block of Logan Circle? Looks like a 7-11.

    • Agree that it looks like a 7-11. There’s a 7-11 on the southwest corner of 14th & Rhode Island, but I’m not exactly sure what the unit block of a traffic circle is. I also don’t know of any other 7-11s in the area

      • It’s not the 7-11 on 14th St. Using my sleuthing abilities, I notice the numbers “33” in the window. Below it is part of the address (looks like it ends in RD). A search of 7-11 locations reveals one at 1233 Brentwood Rd. Could this be that store?

        • It certainly does look like “__33 ___wood Rd.”
          This is weird. Has MPD put up a video with completely wrong location information?

    • If you look at the top right of the photo, you can see part of the address. There’s a 7-11 at 1233 Brentwood Road, which seems like it would match the address you can see in the photo. Let’s hope the cops aren’t that incompetent to mix up the locations that badly.

  • I’m confused. There is no store on the unit block of Logan Circle. Is this the 7-11 on Rhode Island or 14th Street?

    • It doesn’t look like it – I’m pretty sure the entrance of that 7-11 is different. I’m also trying to figure out where this is.

  • Why does the MPD’s communications department consistently misuse the pronoun “which” to introduce restrictive clauses that should be introduced by “that”? It’s driving me insane . . . and I don’t have far to go. And yeah, where’s the convenience store in the unit block of Logan Circle?

  • Waiting for Superman (to jack your sh#t)

  • This doesn’t look like the RIA 7/11, which has a brown wooded door (… that has a brown wooden door?” … that has a door which is brown>???)

  • *Banging head on desk* The superman shirt… cannot… take… that much… ironyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!

  • What’s a “Unit Block” of a traffic circle fourteen blocks from North Capitol Street?

    • Adresses on circles don’t follow the same numbering pattern as most addresses in the city.

    • Unit block is any address less than 100. There are units blocks of Logan Circle, Dupont Circle, etc. But there isn’t a convenience store on Logan Circle.

      Fun fact of the day: Logan is the only major circle downtown that remains entirely residential.

  • on the Hill robbery — there are MPD marked cars pretty much permanently stationed at the time of robbery on southbound 700 block of 11th St SE and eastbound on the 900 block of Penn Ave SE just north. Guess it’s not so effective other than for show.

    • DC CapHill

      100% agree on this. I alternate driving and/or taking the Metro, and this is my commute home, living near 11th and Penn SE. Most of the time it just looks like the Officer in the car is either looking at something on their computer, or sleeping. How is this more effective than being on the cruise for offenders?

      I’m sure the ROE prohibit it, but if only this idiot could be dumb enough to rob someone across from the Marine Barracks, and find himself in the crosshairs of about a dozen Marines with automatic weapons pointed directly at him. What sweet justice that would be.

  • Def. not Logan Circle. The 7-11 there has wooden framed doors.
