From MPD:

“Robbery Force and Violence (CLOSED CASE) 400 K ST NW. Our complainant reported to First Police District Units that this morning at approximately 10:00 AM while walking in the 400 block of K ST NW she was passed by two individuals. As they passed the two turned abruptly and attacked her from the rear, punching her to the face and taking her bag. The complainant received facial injuries as a result and was transported to a local area hospital for treatment. Both suspects fled the scene on foot and witnesses flagged down a passing 3D Cruiser who immediately voiced a lookout for the two suspects running, both with backpacks. 1D Units quickly converged on the area and a full canvass was being performed when the two suspects were spotted that matched the description and both were stopped at the corner of 5th and Massachusetts Ave. NW. 1D Detectives responded and coordinated investigative efforts and as a result both suspects were positively identified as those that Robbed and assaulted our victim. The suspects were identified as juvenile males who did not live in our 1D Community.

Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s First Police District are investigating this Robbery and others like this one and should you have witnessed this Robbery and Assault or have knowledge of it, we urge you to contact the departments Command Information Center immediately on 202-727-9099 and reference CCN# 16-151-827.
