“Dear PoPville,

Please be aware that there have been two broad-daylight break-ins in Brightwood and Crestwood within the past several days. In both cases homes were entered while someone was in the home. On Sunday on Underwood St in Brightwood around 10:30 AM a suspect climbed on top of an AC unit to enter through an 8′ high open window with a screen. On Tuesday around 2:30 PM on 18th St in Crestwood a suspect entered through an unlocked door.

The suspect in both incidents was a b/m wearing a ski mask, and also in both incidents he pulled a knife. The Brightwood suspect wore a long sleeve, tight fitting black shirt (compression type material) with gray/olive drab pants, and white high top sneakers. The Crestwood suspect wore grey/black sweat suit.

As a PSA reminder DC has a great home surveillance camera rebate program for up to $200 per camera, up to $500 per home. More info here.”
