Men Wanted in Violent Dupont Robbery Caught on Video
Three men sought in a robbery and pistol-whipping in Dupont Circle last week have appeared in surveillance footage, according to authorities.
The armed robbery occurred on the 1700 block of N Street NW about 4 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 6.
Video police released today shows three men getting in and out of a light-colored sport utility vehicle and walking in an alley.
Four men were near the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle when three other men flashed handguns and ordered them to get on the ground and hand over their belongings, according to a police report.
The victims complied with the demands of the men, giving them money, cellphones, keys and other items. The men with the guns then took turns pistol-whipping a victim in the head before they fled.
