"robbery"

Crime news from Dupont-Logan-U Street.

UPDATE: Police have made an arrest in the case, according to the Washington Post. James Edward Wade, 30, was arrested Saturday and charged with armed robbery.

The Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) is seeking a suspect in an armed robbery that occurred on a restaurant patio just east of Logan Circle last month. The incident occurred just before 9:30 pm on Friday, May 17, on the patio at Pizzoli’s Pizzeria at 1418 12th Street NW.

Police have posted surveillance video from the incident, which shows the suspect approaching the two male victims while they ate on the patio. After a brief conversation, he produced a handgun and stole money and an iPhone from the victims before fleeing.

The two male victims, who were interviewed by The Washington Post, described remaining calm even after the casual conversation with the suspect turned into an armed robbery. As the Post noted, the video posted Thursday has quickly gone viral with close to 25,000 views by Friday afternoon, making it one of the most highly viewed YouTube videos posted by MPD.

Anyone with information in the case is asked to contact police at 202.727.9099.
