On Monday evening, a women was robbed by two unknown suspects on the 3300 block of N Street.
The Metropolitan Police Department believes the woman was followed after she exited the Apple Store on Wisconsin Avenue, where she purchased two laptops. The suspects approached the women on N Street, knocked her to the ground, and stole the computers.
“I think it’s safe to assume that the victim was followed from the store,” MPS Commander Matt Klein wrote on the 2nd District listserv. “The suspects may have been waiting for someone to leave the store with large bags or other obvious indications of a large purchase.
Klein added that MPD placed additional police officers in the area as a response to the robbery.
