“On Friday, January 30, 2015, shortly after midnight our victim attempted to enter the 7-11, in the 1700 block of Columbia Rd NW, when two males approached him; preventing him from entering the store.
One suspect brandished a knife and demanded money. A witness called 911 and the suspects fled the scene on foot. Nothing was obtained from the victim and the victim was not injured.
The witness provided a detailed description for both of the suspects involved. Officers immediately converged into the area and they were able to locate the suspects and take them into custody. Both suspects were arrested.
Again, this is another example of officers being on their beat and maintaining professionalism. MPD is determined to apprehend and prosecute those who commit these violent acts. Thank you for your support.”
