“Just after midnight last night, in the 3000 block of 14th St. NW[at Columbia Road], a subject cornered, threatened, and robbed a pedestrian. When the victim’s friend attempted to intervene the subject also brandished a knife. This offender then escaped on a bicycle, but was stopped a short distance away by several of our segway, foot, and beat officers who converged on the area. The suspect was positively identified and the victim’s property recovered.
Excellent job by our officers!”
