Judge robbed at Gallery Place; Police beat up by suspect
Last Friday, D.C. Superior Court Judge Stephen G. Milliken was waiting for his train at Gallery Place, iPhone in hand. A "youth," reports the Washington Post then grabbed the phone from him and ran.
Metro Transit Police said they have seen a spike in snatch-and-grab robberies lately, and we have previously reported that Gallery Place has more crime than any other metro stop in the District.
Unrelated: Two days later, WTOP reports, two on-duty police officers were beaten with a pipe by a homeless man near the Gallery Place Metro Station. Additional officers were called and eventually arrested the man. No word on injuries of the officers, but they were not life threatening.
