I was walking home from dinner with friends Wednesday night in Columbia Heights around 10:30pm when I was robbed about one block from the Columbia Heights metro. The incident occurred by the metro bus stop right by the intersection of 13th and Irving. I passed the CVS on 14th on Irving and noticed a group of teenagers. After passing them I heard whispering and had the feeling I was being followed by the group. I stopped hearing footsteps half way down the block and figured I was ok until I was grabbed by my jacket and forced at gun point to hand over my valuables.
I know it’s a long shot but if anyone comes across a red Michael Kors Purse, a pink wallet (containing credit cards, DC license,etc.) and most importantly car keys with a keyless entry remote at the top (both sets were in my purse) in the neighborhood it would be great if they could let me know. Replacing my car keys is going to cost me quite a bit of money so it would be great if I could get at least one set back.
I really want people that live in the neighborhood to make sure they are being alert because it happened right by the intersection of 13th and irving (a busy road and people were around).”
