“Beware – bike riding cellphone snatcher at large in Columbia Heights”

“Dear PoPville,

I was walking home around midnight last night, headed south on the west side of 14th Street, in the northern part of Columbia Heights. On the block between Oak and Meridian, a bike whizzed by me, and the guy snatched my phone right out of my hands, and veered down Meridian Place. I didn’t get a good look at the guy or his bike, unfortunately. I’m hoping that the police can get footage from nearby cameras. I know I should have been more careful and not had my cellphone out while walking. I’ve lived in Columbia Heights since 2003, and this is the first time something of this nature has happened to me.”
