“Dear PoPville,

I wanted to submit my story to warn others.

It was 5:30pm and I was walking down 10th st NW when a man approached me from behind asked for money, and I politely said no sorry, to which he drew a pistol and told me to sit.

I was forced to sit on a set of stairs with a gun pointed at my head. The guy stole my wallet and airpods. I am very grateful nothing worse happened.”
