From MPD:

The Metropolitan Police Department seeks the public’s assistance in identifying three persons of interest in reference to an Unarmed Kidnapping and Robbery which occurred on Sunday, April 2, 2017, in the 1600 block of R Street, Northwest.

At approximately 2:40 am, three unknown suspects approached the victim and forced her into a vehicle. The suspects stole personal property from the victim while inside of the vehicle. The suspects then drove to the victim to her residence where the suspects stole additional property. The suspects then fled the scene. (more…)


A reader reports around 12:30am:

“Someone set fires to a few dumpsters all along 20th Street NW tonight between La Tomate and Filter Coffee Shop.”


A couple weeks ago there was a huge dumpster fire in Columbia Heights. Have we a dumpster fire bandit on our hands? All kidding aside these can easily get out of hand and cause tremendous damage. Props to the DCFD for the quick responses. Anyone else see what happened last night?

“Dear PoPville,

Jack Evans (Ward 2 council member) parked like an a**hole tonight in Dupont Circle. It’s bad enough navigating the sidewalks and intersections when they’re covered in ice, but this entitled politician made it even worse by parking his car blocking a pedestrian crossing and handicap access point to cross New Hampshire Ave NW. He forced everyone to walk in the street into oncoming traffic. I’m sick of entitled politicians treating this city like they’re own personal kingdom.

Jack, you have to follow the law like everybody else. And if you decide to break them (like you did tonight) you might remember you license plate makes it easy to figure out you’re the a**hole.


A Ward 2 Constituent who will not be voting for you during the next election cycle”

Ed. Note: This is not the first time people have been pissed at Evans’ parking prowess. We’ve previously learned that Council Members are not obligated to follow parking regulations except for fire hydrants of course.
