Police seek suspect in D.C. Game Stop robbery

D.C. police are looking for a man they say robbed a Game Stop store in Northeast on April 9.

The man entered the store in the 1500 block of Maryland Ave. NE at around noon, police said, produced a silver handgun from a backpack and demanded money. Two store employees handed over an undisclosed amount of cash and the suspect fled, according to a Wednesday press release.

The suspect was described as a black male with a medium complexion, about 5' 10" tall, and wearing a "bush style" haircut.

He was wearing a black shirt and blue jeans, police said, and carrying a black backpack. Police released security images of the suspect.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call police at 202-727-9099 or 1-888-919-2746. Anonymous information can be submitted through DC Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS, or via text message to the police department by texting 50411.

That is a very clear image of the suspect. Somebody knows the name of this person. Do the right thing and start snitching if you don't want the crime spree to continue.

And we wonder why its so hard to attract new businesses to DC. Thugs and DCRA are a potent adversary, or are they one and the same?

That's a nice photo. These chumps never notice the surveillance cameras.

At least he looks cool. Not bothered about a thing. The most important thing is to be cool 24-7. Don't let anything get to you or stress you out. Not even when you rob a store.

He's got a good future ahead of him. I hope the mean evil cops aren't too tough on him. The poor misunderstood lad.

I wonder why did he rob the store when everything in there was 50% off?

Some folks gotta work. Some folks gotta rob. Prison/jail doesn't scare them. Beenm there, done that. They're used to being behind bars & in the back seat of a police car.

Ain't no thing.

A lot of these criminals are gay. That's why spending a lot of time behind bars in the company of mostly men is something they enjoy. That's why they don't mind going back again & again & again. They like to take long hot showers with the boys. Wear makeup & heels & strut around the yard.
