From MPD:

“On Friday, January 30, 2015, shortly after midnight our victim attempted to enter the 7-11, in the 1700 block of Columbia Rd NW, when two males approached him; preventing him from entering the store.

One suspect brandished a knife and demanded money. A witness called 911 and the suspects fled the scene on foot. Nothing was obtained from the victim and the victim was not injured.

The witness provided a detailed description for both of the suspects involved. Officers immediately converged into the area and they were able to locate the suspects and take them into custody. Both suspects were arrested.

Again, this is another example of officers being on their beat and maintaining professionalism. MPD is determined to apprehend and prosecute those who commit these violent acts. Thank you for your support.”

  • Nice work 3D

  • Awesome job, police – and citizen with it enough to call 911 in the middle of it. I live right near there and this sort of stuff rarely happens.

  • There are always lots of police in & around that 7-11, especially on weekend nights! I can’t believe someone would attempt a robbery there.

  • First, yes, thank you for catching these guys. Second, HAHAHAHAHAHA – cops on their beat is right! That 7-11 IS their beat! Robbing someone in front of that store is like trying to rob someone in the police station.

  • Well done. I would love to hear from the police about what to look for for a useful identification when we witness a crime, or suspicious characters. It’s pretty much always generic – (sorry but true) – black male 16-25, lean, 5’6″ to 6’0″ wearing jeans, hoodie, north face jacket etc. Unless they have some kind of crazy bright new sneakers, in dim light, with hats & hoodies, etc. there is really no way to see “distinguishing features.”
