“Approximately 30 minutes ago C-1 exited the Petworth Metro Station and started walking eastbound on Randolph Street when C-1 noticed four suspects following. C-1 began to run. The suspects caught up to C-1 in front of 502 Randolph and struck C-1 multiple times knocking him to the ground. All four suspects continued to strike him as one suspect removed property from his pocket. S-1 through S-4 fled westbound and ran up 7th street.
All four suspects were described as being approximately 18 years of age.
