Guess I missed the Police Alert on this one… there was a gun robbery on the sidewalk at 13th and Riggs NW on Sunday morning at 6:30 a.m. Some additional crimes from Sunday in Police Service Area (PSA) 307 follow the gun robbery.
Be careful going home from wherever in the early morning hours. Keep your wits about you and while it is better to walk with friends, numbers may not be enough to protect to you–especially when there is a gun involved. Five robbers, one flashing a gun, held up four people on Friday night/Saturday morning on the 2100-block of S Street NW at Phelps Place. No one was hurt, but be careful.
From the MPD 2nd District listserv on Yahoo! Groups:
Yikes. Just got another police alert… another gun robbery close by tonight, this time at Vermont and 11th NW: “Robbry Hold-up Gun at 2259 hrs. [10:59 p.m.] at 11th & Vermont Ave. NW. L/O for 4 B/M S-1 wearing a black Tee shirt armed with a .45 caliber DO NOT TAKE ACTION CALL 911 W/EVENT #120070236295.”
Looks like R Street NW this week is being targeted robberies. I have heard about three robberies where the assailant used a gun. But, police did arrest suspects for one of the three robberies.

- On Tuesday, May 5, around 1 a.m., there was a robbery with a gun at New Hampshire and R NW, according to information from Police Service Area (PSA) 208.
However, police did arrest a suspect for the New Hampshire and R robbery. From PSA 208:

Got this notice in a crime report from the MPD Third District. Anyone have any additional details? A gun robbery right on Logan Circle (at 13th) early on a Sunday afternoon is not the norm. The only details I received were as follows:

Got this from Alert DC this afternoon… there was a robbery-hold up, with gun, around noon on the 1400-block of 14th Street NW, apparently of a business. This would be on the block south of P Street NW. Info is below.
