The suspects wanted in connection with an armed robbery that happened on C Street last Thursday were caught on camera, and now Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) detectives are looking for help identifying them.
At around 9:15 p.m. Thursday, July 18, a man was walking on the 1400 block of C Street, SE when he was approached by a group of four young people. One pulled out a handgun and demanded the victim’s property. The victim complied and the suspects fled the scene.
The suspects were captured by a nearby surveillance camera and can be seen in the above video.
Anyone who can identify the individuals, or who has knowledge of this incident should take no action but call police at (202) 727-9099 or text your tip to the Department’s Text Tip Line at 50411. The Metropolitan Police Department currently offers a reward of up to $10,000 to anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for a violent crime, including armed robbery, committed in the District of Columbia.
