A reader reports Monday night:
“I was leaving the Petworth metro at 9:30pm and walking up New Hampshire when someone grabbed my backpack, put a gun to my head, and said “give me your backpack or I’ll shoot you.” It happened right outside of the Baptist Church next to the metro station.
Today I got a call from a Metro Transit Police officer who said they aprehended someone who had a bunch of my credit cards on them. Apparently they received other similar reports to mine. Not sure what will happen next but that’s what happened so I thought it might be good for people to know to be alert.”
