From MPD:

Members from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Second District Detectives Unit have announced that an arrest has been made in the Assault with Intent to Commit Robbery in the 1800 block of L Street, Northwest.

On Wednesday, September 26, 2012 at approximately 8:07 pm, three subjects wearing mask entered the Pret A Manger restaurant located in the 1800 block of L Street, Northwest. One of the suspects brandished a firearm and demanded money. A scuffle ensued between a complainant in the store and a suspect, and the firearm discharged. The suspects fled the scene on foot.

On Wednesday, September 26, 2012, approximately an hour later, an arrest was made in connection with the Assault with Intent to Commit Robbery.

Arrested was 19-year-old Elijah Warren of Upper Marlboro, Md.

The complainant was treated and released from a local hospital for injuries sustained in the scuffle.


This evening [Thursday] shortly after 9pm, suspects approached a complainant at knife point at 14th and Potomac Avenue Southeast and demanded the complainant’s property. The suspects then fled north in the 500 Block of 14th Street, SE. The complainant then quickly dialed 911. As a result of 1D district-wide units deployed to this area to combat the recent robberies, along with the quick response of PSA 106, 107, and 108 officers, two adult males and one adult female were placed under arrest for the armed robbery. The complainant was not injured. The case is currently under investigation by the First District Detectives Office, and therefore no additional information can be provided at this time. The First District Team members were right where they needed to be at the right time to bring this case to a good conclusion.

Anyone with information about these cases is asked to call the police at (202) 727-9099 or 1-888-919-CRIME (1-888-919-2746). Anonymous information may be submitted to the department’s TEXT TIP LINE by text messaging 50411. Additionally, remember to call 911 if you observe suspicious persons or activity.
