A group of masked men with a gun wanted in a robbery at a U Street corridor liquor store this week have appeared on film, according to authorities.

The armed robbery occurred in Benmoll at 1700 U St. NW about 11:15 a.m. Tuesday.

Video police released yesterday shows three men wearing masks, blue gloves and dark clothing with hoods hopping out of a white minivan in front of the shop. The trio then went into the store, and one of them pulled out a gun.

An employee opened a cash register soon after. They walked out of the store with a bag as someone entered and the worker kneeled on the ground with his hands in the air.

The men then drove away in the van, which cops found a short time later, according to authorities.

Police yesterday distributed surveillance footage of a group of people sought in a stabbing downtown last month, too.

The assault happened in front of Cities Restaurant & Lounge at at 1909 K St. NW about 2:15 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 20, according to authorities.

The victim, a man, was brought to a local hospital for treatment.

The surveillance video shows five people leaving the nightclub.

Cops yesterday also posted a video of someone wanted in a package theft in Bloomingdale, according to authorities.

The theft occurred on the unit block of Seaton Place NW about between 2:15 and 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 22.

The surveillance footage shows a person sitting on the front porch of a home and grabbing a package to put in a bag.

Hair tonic was stolen, police said.

Anyone who can identify these individuals or who has knowledge of this incident should take no action but call police at (202) 727-9099 or text your tip to the Department’s TEXT TIP LINE at 50411.

    Armed robbery right across the street from 3d? Fairly ballsy . . . .

      I’m guessing they had no idea 3d was there. It’s kinda tucked away and not obvious.

    Too bad they were wearing masks because now we have no idea what they look like and we cannot assist law enforcement in locating the suspects.
