“Dear PoPville,

Yesterday, watched two guys steal a neighbor’s scooter before sunset and with multiple people around and, in one case, literally walking by.

Watched for over five minutes while giving the 911 dispatcher a play by play as these guys somehow managed to a) free the scooter from a serious chain lock and b) start the scooter and ride off. Not owning a scooter myself I have no idea how either of these things happened.

So to my neighbor on Kalorama Road in Adams Morgan, I’m really sorry. Looked like a nice scooter and wanted you to know I tried to be helpful by calling and staying on the phone with 911. They didn’t dispatch the police until it was too late. To everyone else who owns a scooter, not sure what to say. These guys weren’t deterred by a big chain lock so good luck.”
