A reader reports:

“You posted a stolen package video that was captured by my home surveillance cam. I received notice today from the U.S. Attorney’s Office that a man was charged with second degree theft and is due in court in early June. DC MPD Officer Naples followed this through and was fantastic — big props and thanks to him!”

Sadly though another one caught on film and tweeted to us today:

“man steals package from our porch on 9th st between k and i st NE. It may be the same man who struck here.”

A reader shares from his neighborhood listserv:

“My sister and I were robbed at gunpoint at 8:15 Sunday night. We were on I street NE between 8th and 9th NE.

We were walking on I street, about 30 yds west of 9th street toward 8th. A black male in his 20s ran up from behind us and cut us off from the front, shoved a gun in front of us, and demanded cash and phones. We gave them, he took them and ran west on I street.

We were able to call 911 quickly afterward. They took a suspect into custody near 4th & I Street NE. My sister and I both positively identified the suspect as the man who robbed us. They did not find our phones, and I am not sure whether they found a gun. It’s possible the gun was a toy, but it looked real enough to me. I’m not sure whether or for how long they will detain the guy. Without physical evidence, he may walk even if prosecuted.

Just wanted to make folks aware, and apologize for the police havoc in the neighborhood last night.”

From MPD:

“The Metropolitan Police Department is investigating a police involved shooting that occurred in the 1100 block of H Street, NE. Preliminary information indicates that on April 9, 2015, at approximately 5:30 pm, officers from the Fifth District responded to a call for an armed kidnapping in the 1900 block of 3rd Street, NE.

The suspect fled with the kidnapping victim, an adult female, in a green Honda Accord, and approximately 30 minutes later, appeared at the offices of the United States Census Bureau, in Suitland, Maryland. At that time, a guard at the facility was shot by someone inside of the green Accord. At approximately 7:35 pm, Seventh District officers observed the green Accord in the Woodland Terrace area and began to pursue. The driver of the green Accord shot at officers in the 2700 block of Bruce Place, SE, and the pursuit continued to the intersection of 1200 block 3rd Street, NE where the suspect again fired at pursuing officers.

The pursuit continued into the 1100 block of H Street, NE where officers attempted to block the vehicle’s path, resulting in a crash. Following the crash, the suspect and a police sergeant were wounded by apparent gunfire. Both injured parties were transported to area hospitals for treatment. The female kidnapping victim was located safely.

The investigation remains ongoing. Anyone who has information regarding this case should call police at 202-727-9099. Additionally, information may be submitted to the TEXT TIP LINE by text messaging 50411.”
