Two suspects stole a man’s scooter Saturday evening as he was trying to leave Lot 7 at Robert F. Kennedy (RFK) Stadium Sunday. The victim told officers that he while he was stopped at the exit of the RFK parking lot at around 9:40 p.m. that night, a man wearing all black walked up to his scooter and grabbed the handle bars and said, “don’t be no fool.”
The victim tried to rev the throttle, attempting to escape. The suspect pushed the scooter to the ground. The victim said he was then hit in the back of the helmet by an unknown person.
The two suspects were last seen headed in an unknown direction with the scooter. There is no usable lookout at this time.
Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the police at 202-727-9099. Additionally, anonymous information may be submitted to the department’s Text Tip Line by sending a text message to 50411.

Prompt and detailed reporting of suspicious activities helps prevent crime. If a citizen sees suspicious activity, or any activity that seems out of the ordinary, immediately call 911.

- Physical identifiers of anyone you observed;
- Descriptions of vehicles;

The Blotter is based on the reports posted on August 18th and 19th, 2019 by the MPD to the 1D Listserv and 5D Listserv.
An earlier version of the blotter said the scooter theft at RFK Lot 7 happened Sunday afternoon. It actually took place Saturday evening. The Hill Rag regrets the error.
