DC Police reported a gun robbery in the 1400 block of P Street NW just after 6:30 pm Monday evening. The suspect was described as a black male in his ’50s wearing a beige jacket. The block is home to Whole Foods and a number of other well-know businesses, including a large number of restaurants. The Logan Circle shopping and dining strip is normally crowded with pedestrians at this time of day.

The 1400 block of P Street NW has recently been the street block in Borderstan with the greatest number of serious crime incidents (First Six Months of 2012: Crime in Borderstan Up Slightly from 2011), although most of these incidents are theft cases. In the first six months of 2012, two of the 26 incidents on this block were robberies, but neither involved a gun.

Tonight’s incident follows a series of robberies involving both knives and guns, as well as force and violence, in the Dupont-Logan-U Street area in the past two months.

From DC Police Reports: “Robbery Gun. UNIT 3071 CONFIRMED A Robbery in the 1400blk of P St. NW LOF a B/M, 50’s, Beige jkt.  DO NOT TAKE ACTION CALL 911 W/EVENT #I20120619952. Sent on: 12/10 18:42.”

DC Police are asking for assistance in identifying the suspects in two recent armed robberies of 7-Eleven stores in the area. Police have not announced whether the two cases may be related.

"Cocaine Borderstan Crime"

Crime news from Dupont-Logan-U Street.

In the first incident, the 7-Eleven at 1622 7th Street NW, near the Shaw-Howard University Metro station, was robbed by two masked men at about 5:30 am the morning of July 24. MPD has posted a video with surveillance footage from the armed robbery. No one was injured but the suspects did take money from the store’s cash register.

The 7-Eleven at 1115 U Street NW was also robbed by two masked men in an incident early Tuesday morning (see U Street Gun Robbery: 7-Eleven Robbed by Masked Gunmen). The two suspects stole money from the register and then fled in an unknown direction. No injuries were reported.

According to a news release from the Police, the suspects are described as “a black male in his early 20s, 5’11-6’0 tall, slim build, dark complexion, last seen wearing a full mask, gray jeans and a gray shirt,” and “black (unknown sex) in their early 20s, 5’6″ tall, slim build, medium to light complexion and last seen wearing a face mask, blue jeans and dark hooded shirt.” MPD also posted a photo of the two suspects — although identifying them may be difficult as both are masked.

Update:  Police have now also released a video with surveillance footage from the U Street 7-Eleven robbery.

Anyone with information in either of the robberies is asked to call MPD investigators at 202-727-9099. MPD offers rewards of up to $10,000 for information leading to an arrest in a robbery case.
