“Dear PoPville,

My bike was stolen from our front patio Friday afternoon, with a child seat on the back. I left it outside for a total of two minutes while I brought my son inside and saw it being ridden down the block towards the Kenyon and 14th St. intersection.

We rely on it to get to and from work and daycare, and would really appreciate people keeping an eye out. It’s really noticeable – a bright red-orange Marin hybrid with a gray and blue Thule child seat on the back. lmarski(at)gmail.com”

At approximately 1:19 am, the suspect approached the victim, inside of an establishment, at the listed location. The suspect brandished two knives and then lunged at the victim. The victim was able to deflect the assault without sustaining any injuries. The suspect then fled the location.

The suspect, described as a white male, was captured by a surveillance camera and can be seen in these photos (above.)

“Dear PoPville,

I’m asking for anyone that witnessed a hit and run tonight, Wednesday, at 6:06pm contact me, I could use your help in identifying the other driver. I was in a small black Ford at 13th Street NW and Fairmont NW and went through the intersection when a green Nissan Sentra hit me full on. I pulled over to help clear the intersection, but she sped off. Thanks for your help!”

If you have any info please email [email protected] and I’ll put you in touch with OP.

Readers report:

5 gunshots outside 13 & Clifton, NW. Police on scene.”

“was woken up by 5 gunshots near 13 and belmont NW around 3/4 AM. Anyone else?”

Update: Confirmed by Jennifer Bristol, Commissioner, ANC 1B06:

“MPD was able to confirm that there were reports of multiple gunshots at 13th St NW and Clifton St NW and there was property damage at 1307 Clifton St NW as a result of the gunshots. Because (luckily) no one was injured and there were no known suspects, a crime alert wasn’t sent out.”

a pothole

“Dear PoPville,

What can we do about the massive pothole issue on 11th Street NW between U and Florida Ave corridors (northbound), and also 11th Street NW between U and T (southbound)? It’s a minefield but also the route that I use every day because it’s the best route for bike commuting. If something doesn’t happen soon, I propose that citizens take it into their hands and start tagging each pothole that needs attention by drawing something ridiculous… so the city will finally pay attention to the safety and conditions of these streets that are regularly used! You can’t be a zero vision – bike friendly city without maintaining your infrastructure!”

Ed. Note: Potholepalooza usually kicks off early April.
