Break in and Suspicious Activity in Petworth:

“Just want to make readers aware that there have been two break ins in the last two weeks on New Hampshire Ave by Grant Circle. On Thursday night my Fiance heard someone knocking at the front door around 12:15am she then heard them trying to kick in the back door. She called the cops, they came search the house and yard. Found nothing. She left and went to her sisters. At about 1am I got a call from the alarm company that the back door had be opened. Cops came and found someone had broken into the house and stole some items. The tried to break in one door, and that didn’t budge, the basement door they were able to break in through.

There were signs that someone was casing the house earlier in the week, late knocks on the door that we ignored, but shouldn’t have. We also had a package stolen earlier in the week and our neighbor mentioned that she saw a man and woman in our yard multiple times.

Today I found out from a neighbor across the street that on the night our house was broken into a woman knocked on his door around 1am, when he answered she said she had the wrong house, there was a man on the street with her. He thinks this could be the same people our other neighbor saw earlier in the week.”
