On April 27, 2013, at approximately 2:17 A.M., five suspects attacked several citizens in the 1900 block of Calvert Street, NW. The suspects assaulted the citizens by punching them. During the attack, one of the citizens was robbed of his cellphone and wrist watch.
Several minutes later, the same five suspects attempted to rob a second victim about a block away. The suspects demanded the victim’s watch. When the victim did not immediately comply, the suspects began punching him. The suspects were unable to obtain the victim’s watch, and fled the scene.
A short time later, members of the Metropolitan Police Department stopped three of the suspects. Two of the suspects had fled in an unknown direction and remain at large. After a preliminary investigation was completed, the suspects were arrested and charged with Robbery and Assault with Intent to Rob. The victim’s wrist watch was recovered during the on-scene investigation.
Anyone with additional information regarding these crimes is asked to call the Metropolitan Police Department on (202) 727-9099.
