Armed Robbery in Penn Quarter

As a follow up to this week's story about rising crime here in Penn Quarter, we sadly have more to report about an armed robbery that occurred here last night.

At 6:35pm on Thursday evening, someone was robbed at knife point at 7th and H St NW.  No sketch is available, but police released a report describing the suspect as a medium-complected black male in his 30s on a bicycle.  Last night, he was wearing a dark jacket, a black cap, and jeans.

Like the other crimes we've reported on, these attacks occur around dinner time, and in highly trafficked areas: a time and place you might feel safe letting your guard down.  Stay safe.

As always, we remind anyone with information about the crime to call police at (202) 727-9099 or 1-888-919-CRIME.  You can also text the tip line by messaging 50411.
