From the Ledroit Park listserv:

“I’d like to make the neighborhood aware of a violent robbery which occurred on my block on Saturday night. The victim was walking on U Street from 6th to 5th, and was attacked in the street in front of the row of townhouses. It was 1030pm, and the victim was walking down the street (sober) when someone came up behind him, placed a gun to his neck, and demanded his wallet or he’d be sot. The victim did not resist, but the assailant still tore the victim’s pants as he ripped the victim’s wallet out of his pants. He then swung the gun against the victim’s head, resulting in a skull fracture. The incident was reported to police and the victim was taken to Howard hospital. Please be VERY aware of your surroundings when walking in our neighborhood. If anyone knows of a way to find out whether the assailants are ever apprehended, please let me know.”
