daytime attempted basement break-in on the unit block of W St NW

See this 12/23/2010 afternoon message from a resident on the 100 block of W Street NW regarding a basement rental unit located on the same block:

Dear all,

1:15 pm broad daylight today!

I wanted to let you know about a recent attempted breaking of [xyz`s] basement apartment about an hour ago, please note this guy is at large and may be back to the neighborhood.

Medium build black male, medium complexion about 6 foot tall shaved head with mustache. He was wearing jeans large dark brown overcoat with hoody sweatshirt underneath. He was using a very large screwdriver to pry the front door jamb open.

I caught him as was walking out the front door to walk my dog.

I heard a noise because he was attempting to kick the basement door in.

I confronted him that he did not belong there and he quickly responded no he didn`t shoving his long screwdriver in his back pocket and taking off running.

I called the police they were here in about 5 minutes and gave them a description.

The guy took off running on foot down the alley as soon as i confronted him.

Please be on the lookout for our neighbors who may be out of town for the holidays.

Followed by this quick response from ANC 5C04 Commissioner John Salatti:

Thank you for your foiling this burglary. And thanks for getting a good description out to neighbors.

An extra gift to you and your dog!

Merry Christmas
