Looking for witnesses to car theft: “My wife was in the car when the guy drove off, but thankfully he pulled over to let her out a few seconds later.”

“Dear PoPville,

We were the victims of a car robbery Friday afternoon. At Florida and W St NW.

We were just moving back to DC after living in Los Angeles for the last year and a half. Right when we got to our apartment complex, as we were unloading our bags from our Lyft, someone stepped into our driver’s car and drove away with several of our bags inside. My wife was also in the car when the guy drove off, but thankfully he pulled over to let her out a few seconds later.

There were plenty of witnesses on the scene.

As the car sped away from me, the driver sped right into the intersection at a red light and struck another car, but kept going. Others saw the whole thing.

But I’m writing in case some others saw something. The car was a black Toyota Highlander. We had two large navy suitcases and a black duffel stolen in the car, with lots of our personal effects that we will sincerely miss.”

Ed. Note: If anyone has tips/info please email me at [email protected] and I’ll put you in touch with the victims. Thank you.
