A reader send as an alert to others in the area:

“Two female Bloomingdale residents were walking home Saturday around six o’clock. When they were on North Capitol between Q and R, a black Ford Edge pulled up driven by a male driver. He asked if he could ask them a question which the females interpreted as him asking for directions. When they walked up the the vehicle the driver had his penis in his hand and asked “Do you think this is big?” The females quickly ran away and the driver sped off. They were unable to get the license plate of the Ford Edge.”

“Dear PoPville,

I wanted to let all my neighbors know about the rash of package thefts my block has been experiencing. Late last year the 200 block of Florida Ave NW was hit with thefts of packages, but over the past few weeks- it seems like it is happening again. 3 out of the 4 units in my condo building have experienced package theft within the past few weeks of March. When I spoke with our neighborhood commissioner, she informed the MPD vice unit about the alleged thefts happening on our block. When the MPD spoke to me- they said that recently district 1 was hard hit with package thefts, and it seems that specific blocks have been targeted in the past. Please keep an eye out, and if you see something- say something!”
