Police urge caution after recent iPhone robberies
During robberies that occurred last weekend near Georgetown and Dupont Circle, several people had their iPhones forcibly taken away from them. To remain safe, Klein recommended that those who go out late at night walk in groups.
“Your iPhone is being targeted by thieves so let’s make it as difficult as possible for them,” he wrote.
Earlier this year, Klein reported a rise in iPhone thefts in Georgetown and Dupont, despite an overall decline in crime in the Second District.
