D.C. police seek public's help in robberies in NE

D.C. police are appealing to the public for help identifying men who detectives say have committed three armed robberies in Northeast Washington during the past three weeks.

In each robbery, two black men entered a restaurant or store, and one of the men brandished a handgun and demanded money, according to a police news release. The men obtained money and fled, police said.

The first robbery occurred about 9:30 p.m. Feb. 23 at the Burger King restaurant in the 300 block of Florida Avenue NE. In that incident, one suspect is described as being about 6 feet tall and weighing 220 to 240 pounds, with short hair and a dark complexion. He was last seen wearing a black and red ball cap.

The other suspect in that attack was described as a black male in his late 30s to early 40s, about 5 feet 9 and weighing 180 to 190 pounds. He was described as having a dark complexion and wearing black jeans and a ball cap.

The second suspect in that case was described as about 6 feet tall, dark-skinned, and weighing 250 to 260 pounds. He was seen wearing a red and black cap.

The most recent robbery occurred Monday shortly before 3 p.m. at the Yes Market in the 3800 block of 12th Street NE. One suspect in that attack was described as about 6 feet tall, with a heavy build. He was wearing a black jacket with red trim and a red cap.

The other suspect in that case was described as being about 5 feet 10, with a medium-dark complexion and a black cap.

Tick tock, these scumbags will be caught by the end of the day.

I hope they enjoy your time in jail, though I doubt it will be their first stint in jail.

And if they were in Montgomery County pulling robberies, would you say they look like off-duty Montgomery County officers?
