“Dear PoPville,

Yesterday at 1:30pm a man at the Post office walking in loud looking for an employee who no longer works there. I told him that she no longer is there as he was yelling so loud and he came at me …

I forgot to say Thank You to the guy who just intervened in line at the post office when this man snatched my phone out my hand and asked me if i wanted to get slapped!!! Read More

Rebecca recounts a helluva a tale last night around 7:30pm:

“Just happened by a blazing balcony fire on 16th St across from Meridian Hill Park. Another bystander and I came across the fire at the same time. He immediately sprinted around the block and appeared ON THE BALCONY spraying a fire extinguisher. Hero!!!”

P. adds: “He took the fire extinguisher from my hands and we both ran to the balcony (I was at the balcony door until he yelled to empty the place). It was my neighbor’s home.”

“Here’s a clip of him going after the flames with the fire extinguisher” Read More

At around 11 a.m. today (Tuesday April 13), a man saw that the hood of my red Jeep was erupting steam and brought me a container of water and a rag before going back inside. Read More

“Dear PoPville,

On Sunday afternoon around 4pm, I was doing a 3 point turn and accidentally backed into a parked car. I wasn’t able to get out of my car on the spot so I pulled my car around to park and write a note, and by then, the other driver had returned and was already driving off! Read More

He lives in Shaw and his dog is a beautiful husky, Thank You

“Dear PoPville,

Tonight (Friday) around 7:15 my fiancé and I went to go grab a bite at cinder bbq (8th and Upshur St, NW.) Our puppy Lucy knocked over an easel which terrified her which caused her to bolt and slip out of her harness. Before our eyes Lucy was sprinting up upshur street. The entire community of people out around 7:15pm shouted, stopped cars, and unquestionably saved Lucy from a very terrible incident. Read More
