“Dear PoPville,

All three of our bikes (our only mode of transportation) were stolen out of our garage in Park View, in the alley between Irving St NW and Columbia Rd. NW between Warder and Georgia Ave. The crime happened between 10pm on 8/11/14 and 6:30am on 8/12. Unfortunately, there was no way to lock them to anything in our garage so they were locked to themselves. The thieves came in the back yard and through a second story window into the 2-story garage, jumping down below and opening the garage door from the inside. We just purchased and moved into this home a few weeks ago, so needless to say we are gutted.

Taken were: 2008 navy blue Bianchi Volpe with a Brooks saddle, SPD pedals and drop handlebars with brown tape, featuring a large dent in the top tube; a 2008 forest green Surly Long Haul Trucker with an Air Zound air horn, Brooks saddle, black handlebar tape, a Surly “Nice” rear rack and SPD pedals; and our most prized possession, a 2005 silver Specialized Hard Rock mountain bike with an Xtracycle long tail attachment and black Surly front fork, with a padded “magic carpet” seat on the rear and blinky lights strung about.

We rode off from our wedding on the Xtracycle, use it to haul our Christmas trees in the winter, and are in the midst of training for a century on our other two bikes.

We are particularly concerned that a neighbor was involved in this theft as it seems unlikely that a random thief would break into our garage in such a manner without knowing the interior contents.

Please be on the lookout for these special bikes! Contact christinaines[at]gmail[dot]com with any information or if you see these bikes around town!

@DCPoliceDept tweeted:

“Shooting //600 block of Quebec Place NW //LOF B/M, w/ a small afro, wearing a gray shirt and jeans ”

MPD later emailed:

Just before 11pm, units responded to the 3600 blk of Warder St NW for a man down. Calls were also received for a shooting. Upon arrival, an adult male was located suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. The male was transported to an area hospital where he was later pronounced. This case is being investigated by the Homicide Branch. Anyone with information is asked to call 202-727-9099.”

Readers reported lots of helicopters and one said “Police have told us to stay in our house and lock the doors.”

linens of the week

Thanks to all who sent word and copies of the flyer above:

“Just wanted to let you know that I got a flyer in my mailbox from the Holladay Corporation with a rendering of their plans for the build out of Linens of the Week. The community meeting is at the Park Road substation on August 13th at 7 PM.

Big news for the denizens of Lamont Street.

I always new it would happen and when I first moved in 5 years ago I hated the factory. But I have to say it has really grown on me over the years. They always stopped working at a reasonable hour, it kept parking available and when Alsco took over they really worked on the trash problem. Once I realized it wasn’t “horrible” I kinda started to think it was cool to live near where people actually physically produced something. Some of my old neighbors from Park Road would work there and we would say hi.

The place DID catch fire once a month though, like clockwork.”

Anyone hear early details of the plans? Could be hugely transformative.

From MPD:

“Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Youth Investigations Division have announced that two arrests have been made in the first degree child sexual abuse which occurred in the 3200 block of Park Place, Northwest.

On Thursday, July 17, 2014, the Youth Investigations Division learned of a sexual assault that occurred at an unknown location in the District of Columbia. Subsequent investigation identified the location of the assault as the 3200 block of Park Place, NW, where a juvenile was sexually assaulted by two adult males.

On Tuesday, July 22, 2014, at approximately 7:21 pm, members from the Youth Investigations Division arrested 45 year-old Orlando James Roberts of Northwest, Washington, DC, and charged him with First Degree Child Sexual Abuse.

Subsequently, at approximately 8:30 pm, members from Prince George’s County Police and District Heights Police Departments arrested 19 year-old Javon Rashawn Henson of District Heights, Maryland, pursuant to a DC Superior Court arrest warrant, which charges him with First Degree Child Sexual Abuse. Mr. Henson is being held as a fugitive.”

“Dear PoPville,

Ana finally got her menu printed—and it is quite something to behold, on many levels! The typos, starting with the incorrect address and days of the week, the foods not matching their titles, the giant black fish on a plate, and my favorite, the whole chicken: it comes with rice and beans, yet the photo is of a whole chicken resting on a plate of French fries. I also like the jalapeno with the Mexican flag on the front panel.

I will say though, the food is absolutely awesome. I got 3 tacos, rice and bean for only $9 the other day, and they cook it from scratch right in front of you.”

Thanks to @ryanpougiales for tweeting us the photo above:

“Filipino church at Morton and Sherman set to become condos”

OPaLdc’s website says:

“Call it eclectic. Call it cool. Anyway you color it, Morton Street Mews is an exciting new addition to downtown DC. Each of the community’s 26 two-level condominiums feature modern aesthetics on the inside and a bold mixture of new and existing urban architecture throughout. Tucked between the Columbia Heights and Petworth Metro stations and just a block away from the neighborhood shops and restaurants lining 11th Street, Morton Street Mews is also effortlessly walkable. Fortunately, you’ll have off-street parking to accommodate your car while you enjoy all the conveniences these refreshing, colorful city homes provide!”
