Weekend Crime Blotter

127

On Saturday afternoon at about 2:45 p.m. Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) officers investigated reports of an armed robbery on the 1300 block of G Street NE. Several construction workers were inside the townhouse, which is under renovation, when two suspects entered and demanded their property. One of the suspects pointed a handgun and the victims turned over some items of property. The suspects then fled the location. They were last seen running south on 14th Street NE.

The lookout is for two suspects described as black males in their twenties. The first is described as 6’0”-3” tall, thin, with a light complexion, very long light brown dreadlocks, wearing an army-green zip-up jacket and dark jeans. The second is about 5’3”-7” in height, with a dark complexion, wearing all-black clothing and a ski mask.

Anyone who has knowledge of this incident should take no action but call police at (202) 727-9099. You can also text your tip to the Department’s Text Tip Line at 50411.
