Dear PoP – Recent Spat of Daytime Muggings


“Dear PoP,

Just wanted to drop you a line about recent day time thefts/muggings in Columbia Heights, maybe you can warn your readers to be extra careful! This past Saturday, at about 2:00pm, in broad daylight, I was robbed at the Exxon station at 14th and Parkwood in Columbia Heights. I was putting gas in my car when a guy pulled up next to me, which I didnt pay attention to because its a gas station and cars are always coming in/out. Another guy jumped out of the passenger side, reached into my car and grabbed my purse, and they took off before I could do anything about it (luckily for me I had my cell phone and my wallet in my hand at the time, so the jokes on them). But when the police came to take my statement, they said the same two guys had struck at least one other time that afternoon in C.H. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up!”
