Lock your windows when you leave home, especially if you don’t have secure window bars on them. Three residents of the 1400 block of T Street NW learned this lesson the hard way last Wednesday. At some point after each of them left for work a burglar(s) entered the apartments, which were in the same building. According to DC Police, the burglars did indeed enter through unlocked windows.

The following is a list of robberies, assaults, sex crimes, drug crimes, stolen autos and burglaries in the Dupont Circle, Logan Circle and U Street neighborhoods. Crimes are from police reports for Police Service Areas (PSAs) 208 (Dupont-Kalorama), 305 (includes U Street area) and 307 (Logan Circle).

Robbery

  • Monday, April 25, 10:50 pm, 900 block of Florida Avenue NW (service station).
  • Thursday, April 28, 5:35 pm, 1300 block of U Street NW: “Two juveniles (one male, one female) encountered a female citizen in the 1300 block of U Street, N.W. These suspects approached their intended victim from the rear, made forceful and violent contact with her, grabbed her iPad device, and fled by running in the north alley of the 1300 block of U Street, N.W. An alert MPD officer was in the vicinity and was alerted to the robbery in progress by another citizen. The officer immediately pursued the suspects. They were apprehended in the alley, positively identified by the victim, and arrested. These arrests demonstrate that the MPD will pursue criminal offenses to the fullest extent of the law.
