On March 21, 2012, at about 10 PM, a citizen was walking in the 3900 block of 14th Street NW, when a subject grabbed him and pushed him up against a building and attempted to take his property from his body and his hand. As this was happening, two of our own Fourth District members, Lt. John Haines and Joseph LaFrance, were off-duty in the area and quickly intervened before the victim could be seriously hurt or any property could be taken.
The suspect was only able to obtain the victim’s cigarettes from his hand and then drop it. And the victim was not seriously injured. An adult male was arrested for Robbery Force and Violence.
Congratulations go out to the Fourth District Members John Haines and Joseph LaFrance for their hard work and dedication to the job in keeping the citizens of the District safe!
