2500 block of L Street NW (Photo via Google Maps)Three masked men wielding an “Uzi-like firearm” and pistols stole about $1,o00 in cash after forcing their way into a West End home during a poker game late Friday night, police said.

The armed robbery happened on the 2500 block of L Street NW about midnight Friday. The area is about two blocks east of Rock Creek.

Seven men were playing poker in an apartment on the block when three masked men came up to the door, according to authorities. One of the poker players opened the door soon after.

The masked men then pushed their way past the poker player, flashing guns.

The man with the firearm that appeared to be a submachine gun soon after told the poker players to get on the ground and give him money. One of the poker players then handed over about $1,000 before the robbers fled.

Police haven’t released detailed descriptions of the suspects.

According to authorities, other robberies reported in the Borderstan coverage area since Friday evening included:

  • A robbery in which a man was punched in the face and robbed on the 2300 block of Georgia Avenue NW about 1:30 a.m. Sunday. Police haven’t released detailed descriptions of the four men they seek in connection with the crime.
