From MPD:

“On Saturday, December 27th, at about 12:45 A.M., the complainant (an adult male) was walking through an alley in the 1400 block of Girard Street, NW, when he was approached by eight individuals. The subjects surrounded the complainant, and one of them displayed a handgun and demanded his property. When the complainant did not immediately comply, several of the suspects began to strike him, and one of them took his backpack containing his iPhone, U.S. Currency, and items of clothing. The suspects then fled.

Moments later, the complainant flagged down an MPD Scout Car on patrol in the area. The complainant reported the robbery to the officers, and pointed out two suspects who could still be seen down the block. The officers radioed for assistance and a foot pursuit ensued. The two suspects split up and ran, however, MPD members were successful in catching both of them. One of the suspects was a 17-year-old male, residing in NW. He was transported to the Juvenile Processing Center to be booked. The other suspect was an 18-year-old from SE, who was transported to 3D for processing. The complainant was NOT seriously injured.”
