Be careful out in Petworth today
Not a question, but wanted to share for the good of the neighborhood.
At 1:30 p.m. this afternoon my roommate was walking to the Petworth metro and watched the girl ahead of her (5th and Rock Creek Park Road) get her purse snatched. The thief fled into an alley and the girl, shaken-up, waited with some people who’d come out of their houses at the commotion while waiting for the police. Just another reminder to be careful where ever you’re walking… and no matter the time of day. This was on a relatively busy street in the middle of the day.
