Nice work by MPD 5D. From a press release:

Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch have announced an arrest has been made in the homicide of Glenn M. Bailey.

On Tuesday, May 17, 2011, at approximately 3:38 pm, units from the Fifth District were dispatched to the 600 block of Edgewood Street, NE for the report of an unconscious person. Upon their arrival, they located an adult male victim in the area of 7th and Edgewood Streets, NE who was unconscious, unresponsive, and suffering from apparent stab wounds. DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services personnel transported the victim to a local hospital where he was subsequently pronounced dead.

The decedent is identified as 46 year-old Glenn M. Bailey of Northeast, Washington, DC.

On Wednesday, May 18, 2011, at approximately 11:00 am, 30-year-old Damien Pannell, of no fixed address, was arrested in the 600 block of Edgewood Street, NE by members of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Taskforce and charged him with Second Degree Murder.

“Dear PoP,

I was one of the victims of the mugging at 11th and Monroe on April 27. Relating to the investigation into our mugging, Detective Weston of the MPD asks that we put the word out to see if there is anyone else in the area that has been robbed by muggers with the same M.O.: two African-American males, one with a gun, and particularly one approaching from the front and one from the back. He’s after any information that may link these guys to other muggings.

You can email Detective Weston at [email protected]

    Any idea if the Damien Pannell arrested for this murder is related to Lucki Pannell that was murdered about 2 months ago?

    How sad for Mr. Bailey’s family and friends. :(

    Glad they caught the guy.

    As the Detective who closed this case. I must say that all of you have brought up valid points. I think the maturity of the young ladies involved in this case and the calm of the author in the face of peril made this case a success story. As a detective I have counseled many of the businesses in the area on safety awareness. I will in my one and only post here leave you with a few thoughts or rules:

    1. The GOLDEN RULE. Never ignore your first sense. If you feel something isn’t right or someone on your near personal space isn’t right do not be afraid to walk across the street or into a populated or well lit area. In this day of political correctness we have to put that aside in the interest of PERSONAL SAFETY.

    2. Always be aware of your surroundings. As police officers we are trained to be “hyper vigilant”. You as citizens need to train yourselves to be also. Pay attention to where your walking or who’s behind you. Never walk home the same way twice in a row.

    3. Earphones/headphones are a NO NO! If it’s well after dusk and your walking home. No matter how populated the area that your walking in is. Stay off the cell phones and Ipods. It takes away from rule #2, being vigilant. Those who wear them are who most assailants target.

    4. If you see something that doesn’t seem right call 911! We, as law enforcement have a responsibility to you. We took an oath that all of us take seriously to protect you and your property. If someone looks suspicious, call 911.

    5. If you somehow find yourself a victim of a crime turn over your property and DO NOT fight your assailant. Your property can be replaced you or your loved ones can’t. If you can get a good GLANCE at the assailant’s, get it. Noticed I didn’t say look. You don’t want to be conspicuous about the glance but just enough so you can provide the primary officer who responds to your scene with a good lookout of the assailant(s). A good lookout consists of race, gender, height, weight, complexion, hairstyle (If you can see it), clothing, facial hair, what was said to you and if there was a weapon involved, a good description of it.

    6. If your going to go out be mindful of all the above rules and take either a cab or walk in a very populated area. I know during this time of economic stress we all cant afford valet parking or parking lot parking but it does come with its plus of security.

    7. LASTLY do not walk in areas with dim artificial lighting and heavy foliage where if something were to happen to you no one would be able to see you.

    Thank you and I hope this list helps!!

    If you have any questions, the author of the piece can direct you to me.
