Crime report: Two armed robberies in Georgetown, one on campus

Yesterday evening, two armed robberies in the Georgetown neighborhood were reported to the Metropolitan Police Department, with one occurring on Georgetown’s campus. 

The first occurred in at the Hariri Building, home of the McDonough School of Business between 9:45 p.m. and 10:12 p.m. According to the police report from the Metropolitan Police Department, a male and female approached the victim and demanded that they hand over their cellphone and wallet. While one suspect took the phone and wallet, the other “brandished a silver handgun and directed it at the victim.” The victim cooperated and was left unharmed. 

The second took place about an hour later at 11:30 p.m. in the 1000 block of 31st Street. The suspects approached the victim with the same demands. The handgun was again directed at the victim—a Georgetown student. The student was unharmed. 

Vox encourages you to be safe as you trudge about campus in the wee hours after finals study. Anyone with information should reach out to MPD or GUPD.
