From MPD Saturday:
“At about 7:45 PM this evening there was a Robbery in the 700 block of Kentucky Ave. SE. The Victim was walking in the block when he was approached from behind and ‘bearhugged’ by the Suspect who demanded his property. The Victim handed over certain items of property and the Suspect fled. There was no injury to the Victim.
The lookout for the Suspect is black male, about 6′ in height, athletic build, wearing a dark jacket with a hood and a black mask covering his lower face.
The First District’s detectives office is actively investigating this matter. Anyone with any pertinent information is asked to call the Tip-Line at 202-727-9099.”
Ed. Note: Last week there was an armed carjacking on this block.
