Dupont Public Safety Meeting/PSA 306 is Tuesday March 20th at 7pm at the 3rd District Metropolitan Police Dept Headquarters at 1620 V Street. (Held on 3rd Tuesdays for Dupont and Kalorama-Sheridan issues.) Our community depends on good communications to and from our police. This is a roundtable meeting where we problem-solve. Bring an issue – no matter how minor. Or email me or our lieutenants items for discussion.
Think about bringing an at-risk kid who might benefit from positive communications with police.
March 6th the dry cleaners on S at 18th was robbed at gun point. Last I heard the suspect is still at large.
March 18th, 1933 18th Street NW a gun robbery occurred at 8:15 PM: Suspect entered the market (El Betel Market) and stated open the register while displaying a silver handgun. Taken was $250 in cash. No injuries reported.
Yesterday we had an assault in the 1800 block of S Street NW. The Defendant approached the victim and struck him several times for no reason. The victim did not know the defendant and the attack was totally random. 3D officers canvassed the area which resulted in the arrest of the defendant at 13 and R Street NW. It appears the defendant is not mentally stable. The victim was not seriously injured.
