Be careful going home from wherever in the early morning hours. Keep your wits about you and while it is better to walk with friends, numbers may not be enough to protect to you–especially when there is a gun involved. Five robbers, one flashing a gun, held up four people on Friday night/Saturday morning on the 2100-block of S Street NW at Phelps Place. No one was hurt, but be careful.
From the MPD 2nd District listserv on Yahoo! Groups:
The Second District is currently investigating a Robbery Hold-Up Gun that occurred this morning at 0205 hours at S Street and Phelps Place NW. Four victims report that they were approached by five (5) subjects who demanded their property. One of the subjects produced a silver handgun and pointed it at the victims. The subjects then stole property from all of the victims.
The suspects are described as black males, 15-19 years of age, wearing dark clothing and thin to medium build. One of these individuals was armed with a silver handgun.
The case is currently under investigation by the Second District Detectives Office.
