At approximately 1130 pm last night, Third District officers were called to 417 T Street NW for a report of a robbery. Crime suppression officers canvassing the area located a witness that was able to provide a very good detailed description of the suspects involved. Moments later, they were able to locate a male subject that matched the description in the 600 block of W Street attempting to get on a bus. Further investigation revealed that this subject was identified as one of the two subjects that robbed 2 victims in the 400 block of T Street minutes earlier (no one was injured in the robbery). The subject was placed under arrest for Robbery.
This case is a perfect example of citizens being aware of their surroundings and assisting the police in making arrest as well as preventing crimes. Officers were called quickly and received a very detailed description of the subject and because of this information, were able to connect the pieces of the events together regardless of the intentions of the subject. We are urging the community to continue to be aware of their surroundings at all times and try to take note of all suspicious activities, events or person around them at all times. Approximate age, height, weight, clothing, color, speech patterns and marks, scars or uniqueness can be the difference to making a good arrest. Thanks to all .
