Robberies at 21st and P Streets NW

On Wednesday night, and again late last night (2:00AM), there were two separate robberies at 21st and P Streets NW. In both cases, the suspect approached the victims and engaged them in conversation before snatching their iPhones and running away. During the robbery last night, the suspect asked the victim if he could use the phone to make a call, but when the victim offered to dial for him, he snatched the phone and ran.

The suspect in both cases is described as an African American male, about 20 years old, 5-8” to 5-10”.

Please use caution while walking late at night in this area and call Police immediately if you see anything suspicious.
