“Robbery at Gun Point, outside of Union Market – 1:00 PM on a sunny Sunday.”

via google maps

“Dear PoPville,

My close friends and several family members were all walking from my apt on H ST NE, north towards Union Market, to cap off a great weekend of celebrating my doctoral graduation. Sadly, as we were about to cross Florida Ave, these 2 or 3 teens with a gun robbed two in my large group of their belongings. This is ridiculous to say the least that these teens did it in broad daylight, in front of children and several homeowners just enjoying their front lawn. 1:00 PM on a sunny Sunday.

I am writing in hopes of spreading more awareness that this could happen literally anywhere and anytime, and to always look over your shoulder even if you are in a large group.

Additionally, it took about 10 minutes until I finally spoke to an operator, there were no police cruisers in sight, so they got away. We were able to make a report and spoke with a detective on the case. I am just so sad and traumatized that this happened to us and and just glad no one got hurt.”
