By Allison Klein

D.C. police are looking for a man who sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl in a car near Walter Reed Medical Center in Northwest.

The victim and a 17-year-old were sitting in a car in the 6600 block of 13th Street at about midnight Tuesday morning when a man wearing a ski mask and carrying a gun approached and announced a robbery.

He got into the car, assaulted the teen, stole some property and left, said Kimberly Missouri, commander of the fourth police district.

Police ask anyone with information to call 1-888-919-CRIM(E).

Who on earth allows their 14 year old out with a 17 year old at midnight in Washington DC?
Explain how that is a good idea...ever.

Sorry, but I'm not believing it. There has to be more to this story.

So what did the 17 year old do while the 14 year old girl was getting raped? The suspect will be caught within 24 hours, because the police will press the 17 year old into telling who the suspect is.

I agree with the other bloggers; why would a parent or parents allow their 14 year old daughter out at 12 midnight to set in the car with a boy? My second question is what was the 17 year old doing while the armed robber raped the girl? Did the boy know the rapist? There's more to this story than meets the ears!

Folks that only have partial knowledge of this need to STFUP. An armed robber forces his way into a car and you expect the 17 year old to do what exactly? I know plenty of grown folks who would wet their pants if someone stuck a gun in their face so somehow you expect a 17 year old to be Superman.

I'll do what most on here can't seem to do an reserve judgement untill more information is released.

Bloggers are always right. The 17 year old should have saved the day unless he was part of the criminal act. Yea, that makes sense. Are some of you this stupid or do you just say stupid things on blogs because know one will know who you are?

Reserve the judgement yes-but-if this is another one of the teen being called on the carpet for missing curfew by way of a "robbery" or sexual assault-then charge both teens to the fullest extent of the law for wasting valuable resources looking for the "boogeyman." If not, then the Post needs to provide more facts before they get people terrified that some son-of sam type nutbag is preying upon teens on date night. This "wolf crying" goes on everywhere from Potomac to Anacostia and as one who's been held at gunpoint working at a store in Bethesda (the eighties were not so quiet a time in this area) I wonder what IS a fourteen year old doing sitting in a car at midnight ALONE or with a seventeen year old? Girl or boy, this is not acceptable. Coming home from the movies? Fine. SITTING there in the car? Doing what? Sounds like the girl needed a story for mom to believe and she and the guy concocted this. Either way it's a great way for the rest of us to tell our 14 yr. olds that there is a reason for a curfew.

It kills me when these bloggers think they are so righteous! The 17 y.o could have been a girl too. Could they have been going home from a social event while on Christmas vacation? Since they were sitting in the car, could it have been the end of a date? Remeber those? What if the younger was bigger than the older? Two kids and a masked man with a gun, hmmm, I just thank God they are still alive!

Obviously these children should not be out, but then again they don't have responsible parents. Seems to be a trend in DC. Children running around under no control, while their parents are out doing who knows what.

I actually have a 14 year old son...and he is never out without ADULT supervision at midnight EVER. When he and his girlfriend are out that late either us or her parents are with them(we live in a very safe rural area in southern Pa). But to do so in a crime ridden city like Washington?
I'm not suggesting the 17 year old risk his/her life and thankfully this didn't end worse than it already has.
But I honestly do question the parenting ability of anyone who allows a 14 year old girl out with a 17 year old(i.e. not an adult)at midnight in a large city that has serious crime issues.
That seems like you're inviting trouble.

True the 17 year old could've been a female, but all I was trying to say is if it was a 17 year male and a man pulls out a gun and rapes a 14 year old, how can the suspect multi-task on a busy street like 13th? Glad that the both of them are alive, but the story seems a little fishy to me, that's all.

Pulleeeezzz....this story is so bogus...first of all Tuesday around midnight what was the temperature????? 32...33..34....?????? Two people sitting in a vehicle on 13th st...doors unlocked???? And someone gets in...YEAH....

When was the last time you sat in a car at midnight with the doors UNLOCKED?????

Never mind what the other party was doing while the younger one was getting raped...

We are talking about the same parents that probably had these kids when they were 16 or 17, how in the world do you expect them to teach their own kids "responsibility". Welfare recipients rearing their ugly heads again.

I know it's just symmentics but sexual assault does not always connote rape. Unwanted groping or fondling constitute sexual assault. Usually, the official police report states rape when there is a rape.

These WAPost articles always leave much for the imagination! I think i read them only to hear the bloggers responses. Hilarious!

I used to live in that area and the local young girls would turn tricks in the alleys. So my first thought is that this is more a case of a john not paying... The worst time was the mornings before school as I lived near an elementary school. So sad.

Un un - this ain't right. Made up story to not get busted by their 15, 16 yr old pimp. They were probably all working together. When you cry wolf, one day you will get burned. Not worth being posted either -what is this the Nat'l Enquirer?
