Two more sidewalk robberies involving “force and violence” in the northern part of the Logan Circle neighborhood (Police Service Area 307), both on Memorial Day but at different times. However, the two robberies occurred about two blocks apart.
The first robbery was in the early morning hours, at 2:30 a.m., at 11th and Vermont NW. But, the other crime was in broad daylight at 8:53 a.m. on the 1700-block of 13th Street NW (near R Street). This second robbery is more disconcerting–this area is well-traveled are in the daytime, full of dog walkers, joggers and passing cars.
I saw this posting at dcist from March 19. There is link to video from WJLA-7 TV. Note that this attack happened several weeks ago and very close to home, at Rue 14 Boutique at 1803 14th Street NW (east side, just north of S Street). However, according to the video, a similar attack occurred recently at another 14th Street business. Anyone have any additional details about either attack?
WJLA covers an assault and robbery committed by a group of teenage girls at the Rue 14 Boutique (1803 14th Street NW) a few weeks ago, noting that a similar crime happened at another business nearby earlier this week. They’ve got surveillance video of five young suspects who participated in a grab and run at Rue 14, with one of them staying behind to rough up the store owner while the others got away. Upsetting stuff.
