Four Suspects Arrested for Armed Robbery (Knife) on 13th between Quincy and Randolph St, NW


A reader reports last night:

“Don’t know what’s going on but wanted to give you the heads up of huge police presence on Quincy St between 13th and 14th. At one point I counted 12 police cars. Never heard sirens, though.”

From MPD:

“On April 16, 2015, at approximately 11:46 PM, Fourth District Officers were flagged down in reference to an armed robbery (knife displayed) that had just occurred in the west alley of the 3900 block of 13th Street, NW. Pursuant to eyewitness information, four suspects were stopped by police officers in the 1300 block of Randolph Street, NW. The two victims of this offense were robbed of their cellphones and wallets.

As a result of the police investigation, three juvenile males and one adult male were arrested and charged with Armed Robbery (Knife). During the investigation, the respondents/ defendants were found to be in possession of the victim’s cellphone’s and wallets.

Anyone with information regarding this offense is asked to call the MPD Command Information Center at 202-727-9099. Thank you!”

  • When an adult is charged with committing a crime with juveniles, does the adult face any additional charges like contributing to the delinquency of the minors?

    • I hope so. I’m sure it’s at the discretion of the prosecutor on how to file charges and building the strongest case. Sadly, the juveniles will be in some type of “rehab” program and back out in the neighborhood fairly quickly knowing how the turnstiles of juvenile justice work in our city. It’s often why adults employ the services of juveniles for certain crimes – they know the punishment never fits the crime for them.

      Sad. juvenile

  • This is a start. Crime has been rampant lately. Very grateful for this arrest, but I hope this is only the beginning of a comprehensive plan in Ward 4 to address the rising crime. Thanks, MPD.

  • Nice work MPD!
