Dear PoPville – I was Mugged at 15th and Harvard St, NW Last Night at 8:15pm


“Dear PoPville,

Yesterday (Wednesday, 10/23) I was walking to a friend’s place in Mount Pleasant after work, at around 8.15 pm. At around the 1400 block of Harvard St NW (around the middle of the block, where there is a ‘For Sale’ sign outside a bunch of new condos), I took out my iPhone to text my friend back that I would meet her at her place. When I looked up from my phone, there were two teenage boys, both around 5’5″ (they were a bit shorter than me, and I’m 5’7”), about 10 feet in front of me. I put my phone in my pocket and kept walking. They called another boy out, who had been hiding in the alcove between the street and the gated entrance of the apartments (I couldn’t see that there was a third person from my angle walking towards 15th and Harvard, from 14th and Harvard). Then, one of them (skinny, low haircut, black male) forcefully bumped into me and told me to empty my pockets. I followed instructions, didn’t resist, handed over my phone, and they took a step away. Then they came back (I hadn’t had time to process or even move away) and asked me for my passcode. I gave it to them, and they walked away towards 14th and Harvard. Thankfully, I was not harmed and they didn’t show any interest in my purse or other belongings.

I say this as a follow-up to yesterday’s post on safety, especially in Columbia Heights. I thought this was worth sharing. No matter how safe you think you are being 99% of the time, that 1% of the time when you have your phone out on a quiet block with nobody else around could be the one time something bad happens. If I had seen them more than 10 feet in advance, loitering, I would have trusted my gut and walked on the other side of the street or just walked back and taken another route. It pays to be aware of your surroundings in the direction you’re walking. Trust your gut.

I ran all the way to my friend’s house in Mount Pleasant and used her computer to erase all the data from my phone (they had already turned it off so I couldn’t track the location). I called the police and detectives, who were very helpful and spent a lot of time taking down case details. The detectives even drove me to the scene and asked me to describe exactly how it happened, and gave me advice on what to do if I saw them again. They were very helpful and kind.They mentioned that almost all stolen phones end up overseas within days, something I had no idea about.

Anyway, I hope other ladies walking alone can be reminded to be alert, and avoid quiet roads in the dark no matter how familiar you are with them, or if you have to use it, to be very alert and follow your gut if you sense something is amiss.”

  • What was their advice?

    “and gave me advice on what to do if I saw them again. “

    • their advice was to call 911 and give them my case number, as well as pay careful attention to what the suspect(s) are wearing and any other descriptions. then, stay in the same place and watch for the direction they go in. they also said if you’re only 50% sure, still call but tell them that you’re only 50% sure, and they will have a different protocol for how to respond.

      • 50% sure of what?

        • 50% sure that the person I saw was the person who attacked me. This was advice on if I saw the same assailant again. Not advice on what to do if mugged.

          I also asked them this, and they said there is no correct answer. The detective asked me if I screamed or raised a struggle. I said I didn’t, and asked if I should have. Then he said there’s no way of knowing how they would have reacted if I had screamed. I think the detectives/cops are pretty careful about offering “advice” since not all perps have the same intentions or react the same way to things. Kids/adults, armed/unarmed, single/in groups, these are all different situations, also depending on who the victim is.

          Maybe this is a communications challenge for the cops– there must be a way to communicate how to react if mugged. For what it’s worth, I was safe and unharmed so I think I reacted in a reasonable way.

          • I think you reacted in the right way too. Remember the guy who nonchalantly walked up to 2 people eating dinner on a patio, and asked for their wallets. Mind you he did have a gun in his pocket and made them aware of this. It’s always better safe than sorry. A phone isn’t worth it!

  • If MPD isn’t conducting sting operations against robberies in this area, they should be. If they are, then they should be doing more of them. There are only so many predatory punks, and going after them in a pro-active way is what is needed.

    • And then what? Youth “rehabilitation” services don’t help, and there’s nothing else to do to a 15 year old convicted of a non-violent crime.

      Honest question. What do we do with the punks when we catch them?

      • How is a mugging a non-violent crime, even if no one was physically attacked? The threat alone would be considered assault.

      • These kids are lost. Only thing we can do is ask the police to provide more sting operations or patrols. The next thing we can do is limit low income housing and continue the gentrafrication process to push the crime to PG County. This will work and has been working since 2000 or we can take the long drawn out possiblity of the community as a whole could do more outreach work and neighborhood patrols. Volunteer work in schools and mentorship programs and other community outreach programs to bridge the gap that has divided this city into a picture of racial and class divide. I see more of a class divide that needs to be bridged. I also think we need to work on communication with our neighbors. Which probably means you need to speak Engish. Seriously it will benefit you in getting a better job and you can help your kids with their homework everyone wins. Or we can continue to push the crime to PG by forcing low income families their.

        • At some point your statement they are lost stands alone as the only thing to note. We cannot raise these children and so many of them are frankly just never taught how to behave. Better schools and laws that keep them off the streets would maybe help. But without real parenting and punishment for poor behavior, what risk or loss is there to a kid to do this type of thing?

          At the end of the day, if the difference is me getting mugged or a kid getting “lost” in the system, I’m sorry, but I am not interested in having my stuff taken from me by force.

        • I’m guessing that “solution” hasn’t “been working since 2000” so well for the residents of PG County…

          • Ignorance is bliss. Those living in the NW bubble don’t have to face the consequences of what’s happening in PG.

          • actually crime hasn’t increased as much in PG as its declined in the District. It must may be that lower density suburban living is BETTER for poor black kids. Gentrification, as traumatic as it may be for communities, may be more of a win-win than some think it is.

          • “NW Bubble” is kinda funny. I live in NE and I feel like there is a much higher chance of my getting mugged in NW. I still watch myself here, but it goes down a lot more in NW. As for PG, a large majority of it is just fine..

  • There was also a mugging reported yesterday at 17th and Lamont only a few blocks away.

    • thats crazy. i typically think of that side of MtP st as being fairly safe. aside from all the cars at least

      • Tons of muggings in the area near Lamont and a little further south in Lanier Heights. I’ve had two friends violently attacked there in separate incidents over the last 1.5 years.
        The thugs know that’s where “people of means” live and the maze of alleys make it easy to get away.

  • Far be it from me to victim blame here, but does it seem like a lot of things were given up just because it was asked? What is the take away from this? Be careful, there are kids out there that are demanding your things and passwords. How can people protect themselves?

    Frankly, it’s sad state when the hoodlums can just ASK for something and we give it to them.

    But then again, I probably would’ve done the same thing.

    • When confronted by a mugger, it is always best to play it safe and follow directions. Do you love your phone so much that you’re willing to be beaten, stabbed or worse? Not worth it.

      • Of course not. And honestly, I’m prefacing this by saying I don’t know how I’d react in that situation. But all the kids did was ask for it, and it was given up. Not even a threat of violence. That doesn’t seem a little bit weird?

        • “forcefully bumped into me and told me to empty my pockets”
          Not a specific threat of violence, but sure it set a certain tone, to say the least. I know what you mean though; maybe it’s just the way OP write it but as I read it I thought, wow, all they had to do was ask? But all I’ve got to go on is my personal experience which is not the same as others’.

          • Yeah, yeah… give up everything. I know that is what they tell us to do.

            Not sure I would have reacted in the same way and certainly would not have given up the code.

            How about run into traffic screaming for up… if I was a 5’7″ woman I would try that.

        • Also Meg, I understand where you are coming from. But the point is that they intimidate you without a necessary thread of violence. It is still scary and there are still ‘what ifs’.

        • Makes you think…

          Is there an app out there that will create a “guest” login so a thief could get in, but not actually have any access to confidential files?

      • Yup.

        They aren’t toddlers who just ask for everything, they know they are mugging someone under threat of violence. They may have “asked” but it wasn’t really a question.

        If you stick to the script during a mugging chances are they will too and everyone can move on unscathed; when you start trying to improvise you’re asking for trouble. They may lose their nerve or they may fuck you up, you have to be pretty street smart (I used to have it, I grew up here and was out all night every night but I no longer trust my judgement as I’ve been off the streets too long) to know which and you never know when someone may surprise you.

        • Like I said, I’d probably do the same thing in that situation. For the good of the order though, I’m wondering if that would be the right course of action, or just encouragement for would-be fool hooligans. “Well if she gives up her phone with just me asking, maybe she’ll get in a car with me and I can go rape and kill her.”

          • I’m not arguing that rapists and murderers didn’t start out with petty crime, but I doubt it’s very likely that giving in to the demands a teen mugger is going to encourage any but a small, small minority of them to ramp up to rape or murder. Those are two totally different levels of crime, and mugging is far more easy and attractive to teens/young men because it’s easy, it’s fast, there’s a tangible economic payoff to it, and it’s relatively low-risk for them (in that, even if they get caught, they know they’re not likely to get punished too harshly for a weapon-less mugging). It’s also lower-stakes for the victim. Granted, I can’t predict how I would respond, but it’s likely that I’d had over my phone upon a threatening demand because what’s the worst that is likely to happen? I’d be out a phone, which sucks, but I’d live. If someone demanded I get into a car with them, I’d be much more inclined to try to flee or resist because the harm that could come to me by getting in the car is potentially much greater.

      • Good advice Anonymous @1:02. A phone was snatched out of my hands a few years ago. I turned around to grab it back and woke up in the hospital thankfully with only a staple, a few stitches and a concision.

    • Meg, are you suggesting when confronted by a mugger that one should try to negotiate?

      • I don’t know how you would negotiate with a mugger, but no. I’m just saying that once the phone was given, I might not be so inclined to give the password. But I don’t know. Just a comment from a person that wasn’t there…if we are so afraid of kids that we will just do what they ask, regardless of what the say, then they have won. Screaming for help? Throwing the phone in the opposite direction and then running? I don’t know what the best course of action is. Maybe what the victim did is what police would suggest.

        • I know people have tried doing things like that, and it may very well work. This makes me think of my first year of college, when students were literally kidnapped at gunpoint and forced to withdraw money from ATMs – no material possession is worth getting stabbed or shot. But if no weapon was displayed and there was no major threat of body injury…I don’t know what I’d do in that situation.

        • I hope you’ve got some awesome health insurance, Meg.

          Seriously — you hear about people getting beaten to a pulp even after they’ve complied with the perp’s instructions to the letter. What do you think will happen with you refuse to hand over your phone or give them your passcode? Go ahead and put up a fight, then, assuming you’re okay with getting beaten or stabbed or shot. Me? I won’t be giving them one damn reason to hurt me.

          • No, I’d totally give up my phone. I agree with you. I’m just not sure where you draw the line. If I came up and asked you for your phone, would you give it to me?

        • I agree Meg.

          Stand for something or we fall for everything.

      • I think you meant to ask,
        “When confronted by THREE muggers….”.

    • I can’t believe how crazy/stupid this advice is. If you’re outnumbered on a quiet street and you’ve already been body checked then it’s not a great time to play Russian roulette. Testing the seriousness of the group of people mugging you is about as dumb/dangerous as it gets. Oh, derpy-doo, will my new friends do anything other than ask for my phone? Some of them absolutely will.

  • I was there shopping at the Target shortly before this happened. While waiting for the bus, I was thinking about how it gets dark early now and probably I shouldn’t be hanging out there too late.

  • There are comments from police officers from Columbia Heights that they are not happy with theirs chief of police and not salary raise. They are not doing much to combat crime in Washington and much less in CH.

  • I live in pretty close-in Capitol Hill, and I’ll sometimes walk in the street if the sidewalk is dark and empty (or there’s one person coming toward me). I feel like a crazy person, but when the streets are empty, the street is at least more exposed and better lit, and when there are cars (in this case I walk close to the parked cars, as if I were going to get in one), shadesters will hopefully be deterred by the prospect of witnesses.

    • You’re not crazy, I do this all the time. If something looks strange up ahead and I can’t go around on another block, I walk in the street where an incident would be more noticeable.

      • colheights67

        I was going to post this yesterday on the thread about advice for the young woman who just moved to CH — when I moved to Columbia Heights (23 YEARS AGO), the best piece of advice I was given was, “Walk in the street if you want/can.” And I’ve done it many, many times over the years.

      • Walking in the street is also a good way to figure out if the other person is overly interested in you or just happens to be on the sidewalk.

        • I agree. I walk in the street when I’m feeling sketched out, or if I must walk home late at night. If the perp is overly interested, at least maybe you can be in view of a (hopefully) passing car. I used to live on that block of Harvard st too, so this story hits close to home.

    • Do you mind explaining exactly what you mean by walking in the street? Where in the street? Is there no traffic passing? Sorry if this are dumb questions, I’m just trying to understand why this isn’t inherently increasing your risk of harm (being struck by a motor vehicle).

      • Seconded. I have heard this advice and always assumed it meant where there is no street traffic. In my case, there was none and I could have done this (I blanked and didn’t think to do it in the moment, but that’s another issue). Am I misinterpreting what this means?

        • I walk on the side of the street or in the bike lane. I mean there’s usually enough space for people to get into their cars. I’ve never been mugged but I figure if I were I’d move so that I’m smack in the middle in the road. I also feel like I’m less likely to get surprised by someone waiting in an alley or something.

      • burritosinstereo

        That way you won’t just walk up to a group of people hanging out on the sidewalk who could potentially mug you, like what happened in the OP’s situation. If you are walking in the street, theoretically you would see if someone is approaching you and have appropriate time to whip out your pepper spray/walk the other direction/get your keys in between your knuckles etc.

  • Thanks for sharing your story. Helps me know how these crimes happen and what to look out for as I travel throughout the city.

  • Also, I just want to say to the OP how sorry I am that she was in this scary situation. I am by no means trying to belittle what you have been through.

    • Don’t worry. I understand and thought the same thing. To be honest, half of my mind was thinking “what? no! i’m not going to just hand it over because you asked for it”. But the rational side persevered- he’s not asking for your wallet or anything else, he wants your phone because he saw you using it. Just give it to him and be on your way. It’s me against three teenage boys, who knows what they would do if I said no, either to the phone or the passcode. It just makes me mad that this is what it comes down to– that someone can call their friends, hide in a dark part of the street, and be forceful enough to let the victim know that they are being mugged, but then literally just ask them to do something and have them do it.

      That being said, if someone asked me to get in a car, I’m sure my reaction would have been markedly different. I would have screamed or at leased showed signs of a struggle because the way out was not as simple as walking away with one less physical possession.

  • He asks, you give. Why on earth not be a punk “fear” mugger – there’s a huge incentive, and virtually no cost.

    In a sane world, you would be congratulated for pulling out a gun and shooting all three of them. And if you did — and other potential victims did the same — we’d see a WHOLE lot fewer thugs and punks starting issues with people walking about minding their business.

    • Until you shoot an unarmed 14 year old and have no proof he did or said anything to you at all.

      I do think it is interesting we don’t discuss the group mugging phenom. I have not heard of a many muggings recently that didn’t involve more than one mugger. They seem to travel in packs. It makes it harder to even be willing to resist even if you wanted to. Taking down on 5’5″ kid is one thing…three might be another story. I’m guessing that is why they do it.

    • “In a sane world, you would be congratulated for pulling out a gun and shooting all three of them.”

      that’s not a sane world.

    • And then they pull a gun on you and shoot first. You pulled a gun first, they claim self defense and have witnesses on their side. You end up dead and they’re still on the loose.

  • man, these kids are just BEGGING to be pepper sprayed. From what I’m reading, as long as your pepper spray is registered, it’s legal

    Anyone have experience with this?

    • Good question. The main idea behind pepper spray is to startle and temporarily disable an attacker so you can get away. Pepper spray can definitely take down an entire group of people, but in the process you will probably experience blowback yourself. It also depends on how far away the group is standing, and whether they have positioned themselves in front of you or surrounding you.

    • Like with any weapon, you have to be prepared to use it. If you whip out pepper spray and don’t use it, it will be used against you quickly.

  • A few observations & a question: first, based on the DC Police tweet, it looks like these youths hit several people last night – there was a robbery at 1600 Columbia Road an hour before by a group, and a robbery at 17th & Lamont an hour before that, also by a group, so it looks like there was quite a crime spree going on. Looks like you did the right thing. The Lamont street robbery with “with violence.” The next thing is a question: is this the reason there were Klieg lights on the 1400 block of Harvard Street last night? I woke up in the middle of the night and it was like daylight outside.

  • I carry a blade and I will show some 5’5″ punks exactly what is in my pocket. Of course Im joking…not about carry a knife though. Its sucks though, I would want to beat the hell out of these kids, but they don’t have as much to lose stabbing or shooting you

    • houseintherear

      I’ve been carrying a switch blade for years, and at night I hold it concealed in my hand with the blade sticking out under my arm. I know it theoretically puts me in more risk, but I like it. I also figure it’ll be good if attacked by someone who has an intent to rape.

  • This is the thing with groups of teens nowadays in the area. They will say “Give me some money!” or “Give me your phone!”, knowing that white folks will cough it up out of fear. If they get caught – and that’s a BIG if – the charge is also a slap on the wrist, since no actual violence was involved. They are exploiting a loophole in the system.
    None of them have actually bumped into me and I’m also a man, so the situation with the OP is quite different from me. That said, every time it’s happened I look straight at them and sternly say “No” and walk away. They usually try to laugh it off and make a disparaging remark (“cracker” is a common one), but I simply walk away.
    You can usually tell how serious they are by their demeanor. If it was a group of older hardened guys or someone brandishing a weapon, I’d comply quickly. But these punk teens in their school uniforms are not usually out to escalate the situation. They just want some free sh#t and are banking on you to be scared.

    • You say “every time it’s happened to me”. Has it happened to you a lot, and worked in every situation? I’m just curious about what my options are. If you are a man and bigger than them, and think you can overpower them, I can see how it would be compelling. This was most definitely not an option for me, but it does make me mad that it seems so easy for them to do it and make a quick $150 off someone being scared of the “what ifs’ that may never happen.

      • I think that it is good that you are thinking constructively about how to protect yourself in future (and so sorry that this happened to you last night, BTW).

        It could help you to check out DC Impact self defense classes

      • I totally understand where you’re coming from and I think you did the right thing, given the circumstances (you’re a woman, 3 vs. 1, the physical bumping, night time, etc.). I’ve been approached in this manner 3 or 4 times in the past few years by kids on the Metro and in the U Street and Columbia Heights areas.
        My reactions are all very dependent on the situation – the composition of the group, what they are wearing, ages, height/size, and demeanor. In two instances, it was a mixed gendered group, so I figured that the guys were just looking to show off in front of the girls and generally engaging in horseplay. In another instance, the boys were probably 16 and wearing school uniforms. I knew which school they attended and told them that. In none of these instances were weapons brandished and there were a number of witnesses in the nearby vicinity.
        I’m sorry that this happened to you and thanks for sharing your story. I think it’s good that you did quickly think about the situation and had an internal dialogue about what to do. You made the right decision, based on the circumstances you found yourself in. That said, I don’t think we help ourselves by mindlessly giving up anything that’s asked of us, if there’s the opportunity to safely get ourselves out of the situation (via other people passing by, running away, etc.)

  • Would it make sense to have a spot on 14th and Irving for folks to gather who would like to walk together through the neighborhood (at least part of the way) until one or more reaches their destination? A buddy system or sorts.

    • I have, in the past, asked a stranger walking in the same direction if I could walk next to them when a group or person was giving me bad vibes. I’ve seen similar stories posted here before.

  • Ugh, I’m sorry about this. How awful. Honestly I would have reacted the same way you did. I’m sure after the fact I’d dwell on what I should or should not have done to protect myself and my property, but in the end the most important thing is that you’re safe an unharmed. A phone is replaceable, you are not!

  • To the OP – sorry that happened to you!

    I also have a related question – This is the first I’ve heard of thieves actually asking for the passcode along with the device. In the situation here, if the thieves have the passcode, that would undermine Apple’s Find My iPhone setting, correct? If you set the phone in Lost Mode and there is a device passcode already in place, that becomes the default passcode for deactivating Lost Mode. Since the thieves have the passcode, they’ll just use that to circumvent the tool, correct? Worse, they could change the passcode from the device itself so that even if you recovered it, you would not be able to obtain access to the device again.

    • In iPhone, do this:

      1. Go to Settings menu
      2. Go to General
      3. Go to Restrictions
      4. When in Restrictions, you will be prompted to create a password. This is different from your main password.
      5. After that, you can restrict a lot of things. Go to Location Services, turn Find My iPhone on, and then set “Don’t Allow Changes” on the Location Services menu.

      Now you need 2 passwords to disable Find My iPhone.

  • My senses are always heightened whenever I’m off 14th st (13 and down & 15th and up) or walk north past Monroe. Mt Pleasant seems to be dark & quiet all the time. I still have never had an issues walk around after dark though(knock on wood). I do wonder if my size and skin color play into that (DC native also).
    So whenever I hear people ask questions about safety in DC, I hate to say it but I can’t help but think a person’s size and skin color would play a part in you being seen as a target. Is that wrong?
    Then again I’ve been told I look like I need to stop looking so serious when I was merely just standing around. Guess I give the f-off vibe.

    • For me, my senses are heightened (good way to put it) when I’m on 14th between Columbia and Belmont. I also almost always walk between 14th and 15th on Columbia or Euclid (yes, that “dreaded” street) and not any of the ones in between.

    • I can’t really speak to skin color, being a white girl, but I do think size plays into it. I’m almost 6 feet tall, have lived in DC for 9 years (MtP and CoHi), and have walked home alone at all hours of the night, sometimes with headphones, sometimes drunk, frequently absorbed in my phone, and have never experienced anything other than catcalls/yelling and requests for drugs or hugs.

      I also think an awful lot of luck has been involved and for that I am thankful.

      • I’m not white. I’m South Asian. I think race matters but more because it is correlated highly with income in DC, in Columbia Heights especially. Not becuase of race per se. If you look like you have enough money and probably have something worth stealing (and/or if you flash your iPhone like I did), I think that counts more than anything else.

  • Is it me or does it seem like all the muggings lately are always about phones?? Esp the iPhone.

  • I am sorry this happened to you, how scary. Random question, how did you erase your phone data from your friend’s computer? Is it possible to do from the Apple web site?

    • If you have an iPhone, and have the Find My iPhone App installed (if not, you really should), you can log into someone else’s iphone/ipad if they have the app too (using your apple ID), and it will do a few things:

      1. let you remotely lock your phone (with new passcode– i believe this is an ios7 feature, but I could be wrong)
      2. Remotely send a message to the phone
      3. Erase all data on the phone remotely.

      It also lets you view where the phone is, on a map, as long as its still on. In my case, this was useless because the phone was off by that point.

      • Hey OP…If you get a chance, see my question a few above. I have iOS 7 on my iPad, and when I just tried to do a test on my device, it didn’t give me an option to change the passcode when I went into Lost Phone Mode…it just defaulted to the existing passcode for the reset. Am I missing something (or doing it wrong…likely)? I’m genuinely curious in case this happens to me/others!

  • Sorry that this happened. That block of Harvard and the same on Columbia Rd always come across as dangerous. I’m a man so I guess I have less to fear, but I always stick to Irving where there is more foot traffic. Sorry people who live on those blocks, I have no evidence they are unsafe, its just a gut instinct.

  • THROW THE PHONE Breaking it. Then learn Tae Kwon Do

    • that is EXACTLY what I did…of course, i did end up with 5 stitches and a broken nose, but hey…still had my phone!

      • Maybe that’s because Tae Kwon Do is realtively useless unless you’ve been training a long time. Learn some Thai Boxing and Wrestling / Jiu-Jitsu or MMA

  • My defense against potential phone thieves is having a flip phone. I know this option isn’t for everyone, but with so few people even wanting a dumb phone there are even fewer people who want to steal them.

    • Heh, I love that commercial where the guy gets robbed for his phone in a parking garage, and when the thief finds out it’s an old flip phone, he won’t take it. The “victim” then thrusts the phone at the thief, screaming for him to take it, so he can finally upgrade his phone, while the thief runs away.

  • I was knocked off my bike in an attempted mugging at Euclid and 15th, on Euclid, at about 7:45 the same night. As I fell I yelled and they scattered.
