The victim reports:
“Early Saturday March 5th I discovered my car missing from it’s previous location at 13th and I St NE. While on the phone with 911 reporting the car stolen, two males crossed the street coming toward me. I started to walk in the opposite direction trying to put distance between us, but when I looked over my shoulder to ensure I was just being paranoid and they were actually walking elsewhere discovered they were directly behind me with a gun pointed at me. They took my phone (with 911 call still in progress), purse, wallet, etc. As I ran in the opposite direction hoping they wouldn’t shoot I looked over my shoulder and saw them get into a car waiting halfway down I street and take off toward Florida. I ran to H St and some really great guys that work at Queen Vic called 911 on my behalf and waited until the police arrived. Last week, MPD posted the video (above) hoping the public could help identify the POI shown. Would appreciate any help identifying him. MPD apparently offers a $10,000 reward for any info that leads to an arrest.
Obviously, all the things taken are replaceable and I’m happy to have escaped unharmed physically, but my well being has been disrupted 10 fold after having a gun put in my face and it’d be great if the police could arrest the guys that did it.”
