“First Degree Burglary
2100 – 2199 BLOCK OF 1ST STREET NW
03/03/2015 10:14

The Complainant reports as she walking home, she observed an unknown male following her. As she entered her basement apartment she locked her doors behind her. Shortly thereafter she heard a crashing noise and went to investigate and found the unknown male standing in her apartment. Without provocation the unknown male grabbed at her and asked her for money. As the Complainant screamed to occupants upstairs, she was struck about the face with a wooden object and kicked about the body. Hearing the commotion, the occupants in the above apartment decended into the basement apartment, causing the unknown male to exit the apartment without obtaining anything. An area canvass by MPD was conducted without success. Look-out for a Black Male, dark complexioned, 5’8 in height, wearing a green coat, blue jeans, red hats and carrying a wooden stick.

Anyone with information in connection to this offense can anonymously call 202) 727-9099.”

“Dear PoPville,

I have been trying unsuccessfully to get a piece of machinery removed from my street for a few weeks. This is on 100 block of V Street, NW in Bloomingdale, a street that already has half of its parking gobbled up by the water project. The machine is from a contractor that is renovating a house, it’s not part of the water project. I’m not quite sure how this machine is helpful in a home renovation to begin with, but I have seen the contractors move it in the morning so they can park their cars directly in front of the building they’re working on. I don’t think they’ve even been working on the house for the last week or two. There are and never have been “no parking” permits posted.”

Update: DPW tells OP that DCRA handles construction equipment that park without permits because this backhoe has no tag nor a vin number.”

If you are able to give anything I would be most grateful. The event is March 15, 2015 and I’m trying to raise an ambitious $1000 but I think PoPville is up to the task! Every little bit helps. Please make your donation here.

“We are shaving our heads to raise money for childhood cancer research! Did you know that kids’ cancers are different from adult cancers? It’s true. And childhood cancer research is extremely underfunded. So we decided to do something about it by raising money for cures.

Now we need your help! Will you make a donation? Every dollar makes a difference for the thousands of infants, children, teens, and young adults fighting childhood cancers.”

Thanks to a reader for sending word:

“My building (1700 2nd st NW) signed dc city smokehouse as the tenant in our retail space. This is the bit from my condo association update:

The Board is excited to welcome DCitySmokehouse to the Association. In short, the much-beloved BBQ shop from down the street is moving into our commercial space. We’re working with them to arrange a time when they can meet the Association and answer questions.

Current location with their, apparently, controversial signage:
