From MPD:

Shortly before 430pm on September 24, 2012, a complainant was riding her bicycle in the alley in the 600 block of Newton Place, NW., when she was approached by a juvenile suspect. The juvenile suspect demanded her bicycle. When the complainant refused to give her bicycle to the suspect, the suspect produced a gun. The suspect took the bicycle and while taking the bicycle the suspects gun fell to the ground. The complainant picked up the gun and ran home. The suspect fled on foot, where he was observed by Fourth District Officers in the 3500 block of Georgia Avenue, NW. The officers stopped the suspect and he was identified by the complainant as the person that robbed her.
