I find these incidents particularly disturbing when they occur right in the middle of rush hour. Props to MPD (and witness) for the quick arrests.

From MPD at 5:31pm yesterday:

“At approximately 5:00 pm 3 subjects robbed a victim on the Metro Platform at 14th and Irving Streets, Northwest. Patrols unit in the area were flagged down by a witness who pointed out the alleged subjects. The three subjects were immediately stopped. 1 adult and 2 juvenile subjects were subsequently arrested for robbery.”
