“looks like the old ZZ’s Pizza at the above corner – which has been up for lease for about a month – is suddenly under construction. Might be interesting to folks. Wonder if anyone knows what’s up?”
“On Sunday, June 19, 2016, at approximately 3:00 p.m., a victim was robbed in the area of 1500 Block 3rd Street N.W.”
From a resident:
“To the jogger who was maced and robbed yesterday while on a run on 3rd Street, I’m sorry. I’m sorry you had the dumb luck of being the target of some predator lying in wait. I’m sorry our neighbors who saw the whole incident, who possibly could have even intervened, sat there and laughed, and then scattered the moment the police showed up.
This neighborhood is not indifferent to you. There are people who care – we have given the police our security camera footage of the incident, for what good it may do. As you were in the ambulance, neighbors waited in line to talk to the police to give their accounts of what happened. I hope you find some solace in knowing that most of us find these occurrences outrageous, and we won’t stand for this as the status quo anymore. Again, I’m sorry this happened to you, and I hope you’re doing okay today.”
From the victim:
Ed. Note: He didn’t wish to be quoted directly but he wanted people to know that he was pepper sprayed in the face at 3rd and P St, NW at 3pm. He was simply walking home from the gym and was tapped on the shoulder and then sprayed directly in the face.

I thought that adults with helpless children has some sort of security, but no! I was parked in front of my house (1700 block of 4th Street) unloading my car, my two-year-old was in his car seat, and the guy ran over flashing his gun and yelling obscenities. I told him I had a child in the car and he still said “Just give me everything.” He then jumped in a minivan and sped away… luckily I got the license plate and used my Android Tracker to chase the phone around town, and the cops are on it, and we are both safe, so I’m feeling a lot of relief. But how hostile do you have to be to rob a mother with her 2-year-old who is unloading begonias from her car? The guy got my phone, wallet, 200 cheerios and some diapers.“
