D.C. Police are on the lookout for a man filmed in connection with a pair of burglaries that occurred in Columbia Heights roughly two weeks apart.
According to a police report, a man robbed a home on the 900 block of Monroe Street between 11 p.m. May 28 and 7 a.m May 29. Though the victims of the crime were present, they did not wake up during the burglary.
The same burglar was caught in the act on June 12 when the person he was burglarizing woke up and saw him standing in their home around 1:26 a.m., police say.
When spotted, police say the suspect exited the house and ran eastbound on Monroe Street NW.
Police believe the two robberies are related, and allege that the man in the video is connected to the crime.
