Two persons of interest in connection with a theft near U Street NW have been caught on video.

Surveillance video released today by D.C. Police shows two men entering a hallway on the 2200 block of 11th Street NW. One of the men appears to see the security camera when he enters the hallway and attempts to cover his face with his t-shirt. The other man is wearing a backpack and has the bottom half of his face covered.

It’s unclear from the video where the men are, but the block is mostly residential, with a Children’s Health Center about halfway between W Street NW and Florida Avenue NW.

Welcome to the Post Cinco de Mayo edition of our weekly Crimes of Note. Two crimes from the past week stand out, particularly given the dates.

Top honors go to three guys who got into a brawl that broke out in a 17th Street NW establishment on the 1600 block (which is somewhere between Q and R Streets NW) on Friday, May 6 at 1:15 am. We attempted to find out which establishment, but no luck so far. From the police report:

“The reporting person stated that a verbal altercation ensued between three patrons of their establishment. The altercation turned into an all-out brawl with fixtures being removed from the walls of the establishment and used as thrown weapons. All three suspects fled the scene before the arrival of the MPD [Metropolitan Police Department]. The suspects were described as: #1-Black/Male, 5’5″-5’7″, 150-160 lbs. with a medium complexion and a slender build. He was last seen wearing a black shirt and blue pants. #2-Unk./Race, 20-25 YOA, 5’7″-5’9″, 160-180 lbs. with a medium complexion and an average build. He was last seen wearing a black shirt, blue shirt and jacket. #3-Unk. Description.”

Second place in the post-Cinco de Mayo “I-drank-too-many-shots” crime competition goes to the person who thought that driving the cab home would be easier than reaching agreement on the fare. Time was 11:15 pm on the 5th of May near 15th and P Streets NW. The police report said:

“The victim reported that after transporting a fare, he and the customer became involved in a verbal altercation. During the exchange, the passenger jumped into the driver’s seat and stole the victim’s auto. A passing off-duty MPD officer was flagged down and soon after stopped the suspect and arrested him. This is a closed case.”

Here are the rest of the crimes of note from the past week. The following is a list of robberies, assaults, sex crimes, drug crimes, stolen autos and burglaries in the Dupont Circle, Logan Circle and U Street neighborhoods. Crimes are from police reports for Police Service Areas (PSAs) 208 (Dupont-Kalorama), 305 (includes U Street area) and 307 (Logan Circle).

Lock your windows when you leave home, especially if you don’t have secure window bars on them. Three residents of the 1400 block of T Street NW learned this lesson the hard way last Wednesday. At some point after each of them left for work a burglar(s) entered the apartments, which were in the same building. According to DC Police, the burglars did indeed enter through unlocked windows.

The following is a list of robberies, assaults, sex crimes, drug crimes, stolen autos and burglaries in the Dupont Circle, Logan Circle and U Street neighborhoods. Crimes are from police reports for Police Service Areas (PSAs) 208 (Dupont-Kalorama), 305 (includes U Street area) and 307 (Logan Circle).
