On Sunday, March 1, 2009, a rooftop incident was reported in the 1700-block of Q Street NW. While the suspect did not appear to have entered the residence–and nothing appears to have been stolen–residents should be aware of this occurrence.
MPD believes that sometime between Friday, February 27, and Sunday, March 1, a suspect(s) forced open a rooftop hatch (and appeared to have broken the “S” clamps). It appears the suspect(s) left before entering the residence.
The resident thinks that this may have happened while she was home sleeping, but is not sure. Detective Metivier, MPD’s lead detective on these cases, responded to the scene and is investigating. MPD is continuing its efforts to catch whoever is committing these offenses.
Please be vigilant, and report any unusual activity to MPD immediately by calling either 911 or the 2D Detective’s office at 202-730-1903.
