  • JFC. That’s normally a pretty quiet block – I’d be less surprised if this happened at 3 or 4am, but 9:30?? At least no one was hurt.

  • Just another Tuesday. So sick of the constant crime in this neighborhood.

    • What constant crime? This is totally out of character.

      • This is not out of character at all. The Hill crime report is nuts. The second the weather turns its non stop with armed robberies, car jackings, muggings. Last summer it seemed everyday any time of the day there was always something going on in Hill East.

        • Last summer was completely out of control in Hill East in particular, but I get all the crime alerts as text messages, and the last several months have definitely not been “constant”. While this is nearby Hill East and SE, this particular area doesn’t see as much crime activity as those two areas. There are people out and about constantly walking with kids, dogs and strollers, and I honestly feel safe walking in the evenings. While this is definitely disconcerting, and I was alarmed upon seeing the text alert since we live just blocks away, I would not characterize this as typical. Glad the victim is OK. This is scary.

  • Woman was robbed in the same area a few weeks ago (April 3rd):

    ‘Two men with bandanas covering their faces robbed a woman at gunpoint just northeast of Lincoln Park early yesterday morning, police said.
    The armed robbery happened near 13th Street and North Carolina Avenue NE about 4 a.m. Sunday.
    The victim was in the area when the two men approached her, according to authorities. One of the men flashed a handgun and ordered the woman to hand over some of her belongings.
    The woman then gave the men her cellphone and wallet. The men fled soon after.
    Police are on the lookout for:
    Black males, 6’0, slim build, wearing all black clothing, black beanie hats, with bandanas covering their faces.”

    Criminals have no fear of being caught or punished…or hurt for that matter since the only folks with firearms are the criminals.

    Stay off the streets between 8:30PM and 7:00AM folks….that’s what DC is these days. Too bad the Mayor and MP Chief aren’t doing much (the foot patrols from last Summer have all dried up).
