UPDATE: This was a bank robbery, not a mugging. I based my posting on the Police Alert. Thanks to dcist and commenters for the update and correction.

Should I feel better that our muggers are getting classier?

Got this police alert today. I wasn’t going to post about it, but then I thought, “Oh, this is a bit different.” You do hear of this approach to holding up people on the street–business attire–but I don’t remember it being employed recently in DC. The mugger struck at 16th and K NW this morning at 9:16, complete with hat and briefcase:

Police Alert-ROBBERY FEAR. ROBBERY FEAR: 1600 K ST NW: 0916HOURS: LOF A B/M DRK CPLX, GRY BEARD, 5’11, 50s, WEARING GLASSES, BLK HAT, WHT SHIRT, BLK SUIT, CARRYING A BRIEFCASE, L/S TOWARD 17TH ST DO NOT TAKE ACTION CALL 911 W/EVENT #I20090540568

And you have to love the irony of mugger in a suit on K Street.

  1. A mugger on the loose on K street, mugging the muggers of K street. It’s like a criminal Mobius strip…or poetic justice.
