R Street Muggings

Courtesy of neighborhood crime-watchers Borderstan, we learn of some Rather unsettling news: three muggings during the past week, all along R Street between 13th and New Hampshire.

The three incidents include a robbery with gun along the 1300 block of R Street, another robbery with gun at the corner of 15th and R, and yet another robbery with gun at the corner of R and New Hampshire. In at least one of the incidents, suspects have been arrested. It is unknown if the suspects arrested are also suspects in the other incidents.

It is said frequently, but it bears repeating: particularly with warmer weather here, it is important to take precaution when you're out and about, even in areas that "appear" nice. You can also sign up to receive crime alerts from DCPD by visiting this address.

They just opened up the new subsidized housing on R Street between 14th and 15th. If I were a betting man, I'd say this has something to do with it...
