From MPD:

“On December 22, 2015, at approximately 2105 hours, Fourth District officers were flagged down at 5th & Ingraham Streets, NW, by a victim who reported he had just been robbed of his wallet at gunpoint.

The suspect then fled the scene on a mountain bike. A lookout was broadcast and Fourth District officers stopped an individual matching the description of the suspect in the area of 8th & Madison Street, NW.

A preliminary investigation was conducted, and the suspect was arrested for Armed Robbery. Subsequent to this arrest, the suspect was found to have a knife that was disguised to look like a handgun in his possession.

This investigation is on-going.

On December 22, 2015, at approximately 2144 hours, Fourth District officers received a 911 call for a “Man with a Gun” in the 600 block of Rock Creek Church Road, N.W. Upon the arrival of units in the block, several

individuals observed the police cruisers and immediately fled on foot. One of the individuals was observed holding his waistband while running. He was stopped by Fourth District officers in the 3700 block of 8th Street, N.W., and a loaded Smith & Wesson semi-automatic handgun was recovered from his possession. The suspect was arrested for Carrying a Pistol Without a License and other related charges.

Anyone with information regarding these offenses is asked to call the Metropolitan Police Department’s Command Information Center at 202-727-9099.”
