From CM Bowser’s office:

“Yesterday, the parents of Ward 4 Councilmember Bowser were victims of a robbery of their home by a man pretending to be a cable company employee. Both Joe and Joan Bowser were home at the time and thankfully were unharmed. Councilmember Bowser issued the following statement:

“Having your home, your place of sanctuary, violated is one of the worst things that can happen to you,” said Councilmember Bowser. “Thankfully, both of my parents are safe, although a bit shaken. I want to thank MPD for their quick response and am confident the perpetrator will be apprehended.”

The same man is believed to have posed as a cable worker to enter at least one other home in the area that same day.

“This just goes to show that we all need to stay vigilant and ask for identification when someone we do not know, or did not expect, knocks on our door,” said Bowser.

Police are offering a reward of up to $1,000 to anyone who provides information leading to an arrest. Anyone with information is asked to call (202) 727-9099 or text an anonymous tip to 50411.”
