Among the seven robberies listed below, which occurred between Friday and Wednesday, three of them were carjackings. In all three cases, a gun was used in the carjacking.
The carjackings occurred at 11th and Florida NW, 16th and P NW and at 13th and U NW. Some additional details are below and we are attempting to get more information on these three crimes. Each of the three carjackings showed up as such (as opposed to simple robberies) on the EveryBlock reporting system but not on MPD listserv crime reports; this is why the links to the EveryBlock reports are included.
There was one additional gun crime in the past few days, at 10th and O Street NW, early Monday morning.
Another unusual robbery occurred Tuesday morning around 5:30 am when two men in a pickup truck committed a robbery with a hunting knife near 11th and Massachusetts NW. (Take note early-morning joggers.)
