  • RGIII? Check his knees!

    When DC gets an image of suspects as clear as this one it needs to be blasted all over the media in the same fashion as an Amber Alert. There should be some sort of database where concerned citizens can sign into and receive visual alerts of suspects, data ect. Crowd Source the capture of suspected assailants.

  • I’m assuming they mean orthodontic braces. Maybe circulate these pics to all the orthodontist offices in the area?

  • There’s a typo in the headline – this was 11:00am, in the middle of the day, not 1:00am at night.

  • I bet those ‘locks are long gone.

  • Person of interest has parents or guardian that care enough to have him see an orthodontist?

    • Not every black person nor criminal for that matter comes from a poor household. Some of the worlds biggest criminals wear a suit and tie everyday.

    • they got him?

      • I just read they arrested someone on WTOP. Apparently he’s 18 – might actually serve some time?

      • Fox 5 indicated that the suspect was arrested in this mornings breaking news. Pop can validate

          Yes the mayor is doing a press conference later this morning. I’ll post the news release when they send it out.
