The robbery happened within the Columbia Heights Educational Campus at 3101 16th St. NW about 3:30 p.m. The campus, which has students in grades 6 to 12, includes Bell Multicultural High and Lincoln Multicultural Middle schools.
The boy was descending a stairway in the school when someone forced him to a wall and said, “Don’t move,” according to authorities. Another person then came up to the boy and started to check one of his pockets before the kid tried to push the individual away.
Undeterred, the second suspect in the robbery grabbed the boy’s wallet from his pocket, police said. The victim then reported the robbery to a school administrator, who spotted the second suspect and told the person to stop. But the individual ran away.
Police have not released descriptions of either of the suspects.
