“I was tackled off my bike and robbed at gunpoint on the Sligo Creek Trail.”

“Dear PoPville,

I just wanted to put out a safety alert to the biking community and anyone else using the greenways in the area.

I was tackled off my bike and robbed at gunpoint on the Sligo Creek Trail. This happened in the wooded area between Green Meadows and Kirkwood Apartments, which is near the West Hyattsville metro stop, around 9:20 am on Thursday morning.

Suspect was B/M 18-25 and wore a jacket covering a hoodie. Put on a mask when the gun was pulled.

Thankful I’m okay, but my bike (black, Cannondale, hybrid, picture attached) and white Ortlieb pannelier along with its contents, including my wallet and external hard drive were stolen.

I hope no one else crosses path with this person, and that it be a reminder to keep aware of surroundings as the unexpected happens. Stay safe out there, everyone.”
