From MPD:

“I would like to share some outstanding police work by members of MPD that occurred yesterday.

At approximately 6:00 pm, a female citizen was walking in the area of the 500 block of C Street, NW when a juvenile suspect snatched her cell phone and fled on foot. The female gave brief chase and then alerted Commander Jake Kishter of the Third District and Commander Keith Williams of the Police Academy who were walking in the area. The two Commanders gave chase and subsequently apprehended the suspect along with the victim’s cell phone.”

Ed. Note: This is the second time Commander Kishter has received props chasing suspects on foot.

    Great work! Kishter is always responsive to issues and it seems he gets things done on the street as well

    I always LOVE hearing about cellphone snatchers getting caught!
    .
    If either Commander is reading this, please post a comment with your favorite bar in town, and I will happily go and buy you a well deserved round of drinks, because you’re awesome and that’s what citizens should do for awesome people.

    Not sure why spending lots of effort to chase and arrest a juvenile in DC makes sense, he/she is likely already back out being a bad guy with hardly a slap on the wrist!?

      Do you not bathe because you’re just going to get dirty again?

      It makes sense to chase and arrest a thief because if they didn’t bother, there would be a lot more thieves.

    “The two Commanders gave chase and subsequently apprehended the suspect along with the victim’s cell phone.”
