Thanks to Noah and Walter for sending from CNN:

5D Robbery Snatch of a 9 year old

On October 30, 2019 at approximately 3:30 PM a 9 year old girl and a 10 year old girl were walking home from school in the area of the 900 block of 22nd Street NE. The 9 year old borrowed the 10 year old’s cell phone to call her mother as they were walking. As they were walking they encountered a group of juvenile males, one of which grabbed the phone from the 9 year old. The group fled on foot towards the 1900 block of I Street NE. Neither of the girls were injured.

This case is being investigated by members of the Fifth District Detectives Office. Anyone with information is asked to call (202)727-9099.”
