“Dear PoPville,

Just wanted to report an incident of harassment at N and 8th St. NW (8:45pm Wed. night.) My husband and I were on scooters on our way home up 8th when three kids moved into the street and we had to come to a stop to avoid colliding with them. They threatened to take our scooters, and when we refused, one of them started kicking mine over and over.

I was scared but maneuvered away, but they continued to run after us and threaten to knock us over. We got away, bc of the quick pace of many scooters.

Not sure if this was a one-off of bad manners or a trend of ambush and steal, but wanted to let the community know!”
