“Need a theory”

“Dear PoPville,

How in the world did this happen to our alley neighbor overnight?!

The white BMW is always parked in what used to be a little protected parking space and the grey gate would swing open to allow access in and out. This morning it appears another car forcefully joined the BMW by completely smashing through the enclosure. Read More

“Dear PoPville,

A friend of mine was walking down Sherman Ave at Euclid and was told that they could not keep walking south due to an active gas leak. They aren’t even letting crew members or folks that live on that block in. Does anyone know what’s going on or when it will be resolved? I’m not sure where to look for that info. (Side note, my building is in this photo and my dog is inside with the windows open.. should I worry??)”

Side note: Nearby DC Water reports, “Emergency shut on 8″ water main due to struck service on the 1000 Block of Girard St NW between 11th St and Sherman Ave NW. ETA 6-8 hours”

Kevin shares this upsetting report from this Saturday:

“I just wanted to let you know I was brutally assaulted and robbed by 2 males in between Columbia and Harvard street on Sherman. They followed me from 7-11 and attacked me from behind. I was brutally beaten for 30-45 seconds and they got away with my wallet.

The law enforcement responded immediately and they have suspects being questioned.

I am OK, my thoughts are with our safety as a community.”
