19801Robbery Hold-Up Gun & Arrests
- Aug 27, 2014
Good Afternoon –
This afternoon at approximately 3:15 PM, Fifth District units received a radio run regarding a robbery on the Metropolitan Branch Trail near R Street NE. Patrol officers arrived quickly and located the complainant.
The complainant reported that three subjects followed him from the 300 block of R Street NE onto the MBT. Once on the Trail, one subject produced a gun and demanded the complainant’s property. The complainant complied and the suspects fled west on R Street. The officer on the scene broadcast a comprehensive look-out over the Fifth District radio zone.
Minutes later, an officer canvassing the area noticed subjects matching the description. The subjects were stopped, a positive identification made, a handgun recovered, and two arrests made.
Outstanding and quick work by the patrol officers of 5D!
