From MPD:

“A citizen reports he was waiting for a ride at the bus stop at Georgia and New Hampshire Ave. NW, at approximate 630 AM, this morning [Saturday] when he was approached by five male subjects. The subjects punched him about his body and held him down and removed his shoes, wallet and cell phone from his possession. A Fourth District MPD Officer, Clinton Brown was driving by on patrol as the suspects ran across the street and boarded a Metro bus. A lookout was given by other officers in the field as the bus went south bound on Georgia Avenue. The bus was stopped by MPD and Metro Transit Officers. The suspects were removed from the bus and a show up was conducted. The citizen made a positive Identification of the five suspects who robbed him. All five were arrested and the shoes were recovered from the bus. All Five are charged with Robbery, Force and Violence.

Great collaboration between the members of the Metropolitan Police Department, the Detective’s Office and the Metro Transit Police with arresting and removing five young robbers from the streets of the Fourth District. Good work by all!!”
