A man sought in the robbery of an athletic clothing store in Logan Circle this week has appeared in surveillance footage, according to authorities.
The robbery happened at the Lululemon Athletica at 1461 P St. NW just before 6 p.m. Tuesday.
Video police distributed yesterday in connection with the crime shows a man with a white sweatshirt and blue jeans walking around the store. At one point in the footage, the man wrote something on a piece of paper and handed it to a cashier. He then got behind the sales counter, took an iPhone and grabbed a cash drawer before leaving.
According to a police report, the note said: “This is a robbery. Don’t say sh-t.” The suspect in the robbery also claimed he had a knife, which he never showed.
Police yesterday also released a video in connection with a downtown theft last week.
The theft happened on the 1900 block of L Street NW about 11:45 a.m. Thursday, May 19.
The footage shows a man with a gray sweatshirt loading a sport utility vehicle with boxes that were wrapped in cellophane on a pallet in an alley.
