1300 H Street NE 1Someone in a group of kids threatened a man with a box cutter after he called the cops on them for “tampering” with bikes on the H Street corridor yesterday evening, according to D.C. Police.

The crime occurred on the 1300 block of H Street NE around 6:45 p.m. yesterday.

The incident started when after a man saw a group of kids “tampering” with bikes on the sidewalk, a police report said. When the man approached the kids and told them he wasn’t leaving until the police arrived, one of the kids produced a box cutter, prompting the man to pull out a pocket knife. The man was able to flag down several passing police officers before a fight broke out, however.

The officers arrested the kid with the box cutter and nobody was injured during the standoff, police said.

Additionally, someone broke into a school for children with disabilities in Columbia Heights yesterday, police said.

A burglar threw a rock through a window at the Easter Seals Child Development Center (2800 13th St. NW) and entered the building around 4:30 a.m. yesterday, according to authorities.

Once inside, the burglar broke a lock on an office cabinet and rummaged through it. The burglar did not take anything from the cabinet before leaving, police said.

    Stay classy dbags.

    Curious why, if the man called the police, there were police cars that drove by rather than stop.

    Proving once again that the only thing that stops a bad guy with a box cutter is a good guy with a pocket knife.

    The one time I was waiting for an officer in DC, three others drove by and asked if we had called it in. They wouldn’t stop, though. That’s the answer I was given by each of them.
