A resident reported on the MPD 4D Listserv:

“…2nd night in a row a group of 8 to 10 teens mugged and robbed someone in the 6800 block of 4th street. Tonight they 1st harassed a biker, who managed to get away from them and then beat and robbed a neighbor who was walking home from the Rec. center. They took cell phones, a laptop, clothes, and wallet and ran toward the metro. It is very unsettling because neighbors were on their porches and motion sensor lights in my yard came on but this did not deter the muggers. Both nights it happened around 7:30. Police responded quickly.”

MPD responded:

“Lieutenant Ennis (PSA 401) has put together a plan of action to combat the crime in the Takoma Park Area. This plan is designed to prevent the rash of robberies in the area with the goal to arrest those individuals responsible. We have adjusted our deployment to ensure that officers are in this area, to prevent any criminal activity. Please if you see a large crowd gathering or if you suspect criminal activity please call 911. Remember if you see something say something.”
