Ed. Note: Yesterday we spoke about a an armed robbery in the 2300 block of First Street, NW.

A reader reports Monday:

“I don’t know the details but I was walking my kids down 2nd street and V in Bloomingdale around 11:30 today and a roofer walked over to his colleagues and said 2 men put a gun to his face and stole his wallet. He seemed oddly calm–maybe in shock. He called the police and they were still on site about an hour later. Sounds similar to the guys that did the same on 1st and V last month when the guys caught him and held him until police arrived. Perhaps targeting workers who may have cash from jobs? Not sure but scary either way.”

MPD reported:

“On Monday, June 13, 2016, at approximately 12:00 PM, three victims report while in the 2000 block of Flagler Place, NW they were approached by two suspects. Suspect one was armed with a silver handgun. The second suspect who was unarmed went through the victims pockets and obtained property from all three. The suspects fled on foot and were last seen getting into a green Honda Civic (older model) in the 2000 block of Elm St., NW.
