A reader reports:

“Around 11:30PM last night, I heard what I thought was probably a couple of gun shots fired on the 800 block of Kennedy Street, NW. Shortly after a cop car came patrolling around, circled the block, and then came back around with its search light on – minutes later, dozens of cop cars joined in with their red and blue lights and I believe they followed a suspect into the back entrance of an apartment complex on Longfellow. I’m most surprised nothing has been reported on this and that there wasn’t an AlertDC notification about this situation.”

Ed. Note: I believe Alert DC notices/MPD reports are not automatically sent for shots fired, they are sent when somebody is hit by gunfire.

“Dear PoPville,

Walking to work on 2nd Street NE between K and L around 9:30am, a man with a black mask, black jacket and black pants was walking down the street exposing himself. When I noticed I quickly walked by. When I got a safe distance away I turned around and he kept looking back, then zipped up and ran off toward 3rd street. I called the police but wanted to give everyone else a heads up. Right when this happened, I remembered reports of a flasher in NoMa. I wonder if this is the same guy.”

“Dear PoPville,

“Doug” the scammer is loose on Q Street. Just chased him away from our house just down from Dacha. Calling himself “Dr. Doug Scott” and that he needs to make a call since he left his suit somewhere blah blah blah. The pic you have from Jan 16 is spot on except he’s now wearing glasses. He rang the bell and when I opened the outer door (since I thought it was UPS) he stuck his foot in the door and began his pitch. I called him out as a scammer and that the whole neighborhood was aware of him. He got real quiet and backed away slowly. The Hubby was a little taken aback by how forceful I was but then I showed him the photo and your ongoing coverage and I mentioned he shoved his foot in the door. I did call the cops.”

From the Whitman-Walker Health:

“Thank you for publishing this piece on Doug/Gene. I wanted to offer an update that this individual is not a Whitman-Walker employee and has not been on staff with us.

We appreciate you bringing light to this story as we’ve learned of their scams.”

From an email:

“The DC Superior Court wants to update the public on an oversight that resulted in jury summonses for the week of January 29 and February 5 not being mailed in a timely way. The Court has taken steps to prevent any recurrence. More importantly, the Court reports that not one trial was delayed due to an unavailability of jurors.

“We appreciate everyone who serves jury duty throughout the year, but I want to especially thank those who served the past two weeks on such short notice,” said DC Superior Court Chief Judge Robert E. Morin. (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

I would like to try to let a woman know that myself and my husband are willing to be witnesses for her if she wishes to press charges against her assailant. We attempted to intervene and called 911 when we witnessed her being assaulted on the street at 7th and M tonight [Tuesday 7:30pm]. I thought she was being robbed but when I stopped and honked to try to scare him off and he went back to choking her and holding her against a vehicle it became more apparent they knew each other or were in a relationship. I really would like to help her if possible.”

Ed. Note: If the victim or a friend of the victim happens to come across this offer please email [email protected] so I can put you in touch with the OP. Wishing you peace and safety.
