    Am I reading this right? A violent robbery on 14th, between P and Q, at 7:15 on a Sunday evening? That’s broad daylight at this time of year, and on a relatively busy thoroughfare.

    I’m a little bit new to these crime reports – what exactly does “force & violence” mean? I assume if there were a weapon involved, that would have been noted?

    Regardless – man, that’s brazen. And troubling.

    Sorry – *Wednesday* evening, I meant. Which is actually even worse. Sunday evenings are sometimes kind of dead, but 7:15 on a Wednesday? Hell, I’m walking home from work around then. Wouldn’t there have been loads of people around?

    Was it this robbery of Universal Gear?:

    Jesus – I guess so. Not the broad daylight mugging on the sidewalk that I was picturing, but still pretty bad.
