The following two crimes occurred yesterday on Monday, July 13, in Borderstanâ€¦ note that the assault on Corcoran Street occurred at 4 p.m. The robbery last night on S Street was first reported in the crime alert posting below.
Note: Remember that when you are talking on your cell phone, you are probably not paying attention to your surroundings. This is particularly dangerous late at night. Criminals target people who are talking on their cell phones at night on quiet streets. If you don’t believe me, ask an officer with the DC police.
Be careful out there, Borderstanians.
