“The bike was recovered just a few blocks from my place in an alley. It was recovered with little damage. The officers were extremely helpful and professional, as you can see, dusting the bike for fingerprints!”
I wanted to reach out to you about a dangerous animal on second street. The other night I was letting my dog out to go the bathroom and we went to the field by second and W st, nw. When we were out there there was a dog that I could not see that was way back in the park. And that dog ran after my dog and viciously attacked my dog Kaiser. I was wondering if we can find any more information about this dog. It’s a black pit bull its owner is an African-American with short dreadlocks about 30 years old. When I confronted the owner about his dangerous animal he told me that I should not be in the field with my dog. That his dog is a dog aggressive dog and I should take my dog to the dog park not the field. I’m in the process of making a report and trying to get this dog removed from the neighborhood. I was wondering if anybody else has dealt with this dog or knows of an incident that happened with their dog with this dog?
I saw this sign at the LeDroit Park dog park. Almost every evening, unsupervised children come to the dog park to play with the dogs. Generally speaking, the kids are curious and friendly and positive experiences are had. However, I’ve always been worried that a kid might inadvertently get hurt. I was not present with this incident occurred, but the fact that this parent is now looking for the dog owner leads me to believe they were not present when this bite happened, otherwise I’m sure that information would have been exchanged. Some dogs simply don’t like kids, or when dogs are running around someone could get knocked down and hurt. Does the city have rules on this? I fear some good dogs could get put down because children are entering dog parks unsupervised.”

Thank you to a stranger. On Saturday, 13 February at roughly 1:15 pm, I was walking from my place in Ledroit Park to the grocery store. I was at 3rd and Elm NW when I heard a verbal altercation about 15 feet behind me. I briefly turned around to gauge the situation, saw two men arguing, and then continued walking. The voices escalated so I looked behind me once more and saw one of the men pull a gun and fire it at the other man. They then both scattered.
During this somewhat scary 30 seconds, a man roughly two blocks away was helpfully shouting instructions at me (believe me, it’s much more difficult to react when you are in this situation, even if you “know” what to do…). The man then came and kept me company until the cops came. He then offered to walk me home or to the place of my choosing. With all of the confusion and adrenaline, I failed to get his name. So, in the off chance you read this, I just want to send a big thank you for taking 20 minutes out of your day to keep me company and talk me down a bit during a stressful time. Thanks for helping DC feel even more like a community and a home.“
