Thieves Beat, Rob Man at Gunpoint in Shaw
Three thieves with a gun beat up and robbed a man in Shaw early yesterday morning, police said.
The violent armed robbery happened on the 900 block of N St. NW at about 1:11 a.m. Sunday morning, according to authorities. The area is about one block west from several popular Shaw restaurants and bars.
Three men were walking along the sidewalk when they were approached by three suspects, authorities said. One of the suspects asked if the men had any marijuana or money. When one of the men replied “no,” the suspect pulled out a black handgun and pointed it at him. The two other suspects then hit the man in the face, knocking him to the ground.
Two of the suspects kicked the man repeatedly before making away with his wallet, $105 and a D.C. ID.
The three robbers were last seen heading north on the 1300 block of 10th St. NW, police said.
