Thieves Rob Man at Gunpoint in Bloomingdale in Broad Daylight
Two thieves with a gun robbed a man in Bloomingdale yesterday afternoon, police said.
The armed robbery happened on the unit block of W Street NW about 1 p.m. Monday.
The victim was walking home just west of Prospect Hill Cemetery when two young men came up to him, according to authorities.
One of the young men told the victim not to look at him and then took out a handgun from his hooded sweatshirt.
“Hurry up, you takin’ too long,” the young man said, while putting the gun to the victim’s head, according to authorities.
The two young men took the victim’s iPhone, iPad, headphones, backpack and some of his other belongings soon after. They then hopped in a car with another person and drove away.
Police said they have arrested three boys in connection with the crime.
