PSA 202 Map

Please find below the crime statistics for Police Service Area (PSA) 202 for the period January 24, 2014 to February 7, 2014, compiled by Les Wexler.

As has been the pattern, there were numerous thefts from autos this period, but relatively little violent crime. A crime that occurred at 48th and Albemarle Streets on or about February 5 had been over-reported as a home invasion. Per MPD Lieutenant Alan Hill, the crime was actually a Burglary Two:

The home owner was away from the home for a day or so and came home to discover that an exterior door had been forced open. She called the dispatcher and the dispatcher advised her not to go into the home. MPD brought in a K-9 to sweep the home and no suspects were located.

Although a Burglary Two is not trivial, the (much appreciated) robust police response apparently suggested a more serious crime to some residents.

A more serious crime, a robbery, did occur on February 6.  Again, per Lt. Hill: 

The complainants report that while they were sitting down on the bench in front of the library, they were approached by two suspects. Suspect 1 made a demand for clothing property belonging to complainant while his hand was inside of his pocket, as if he had a weapon. The complainant complied and gave Suspect 1 the requested property. Suspect 1 then told Complainant 1 to produce more property. While Complainant 1 was complying with that command, a witness, who was driving northbound on Wisconsin Avenue, observed the incident and noticed that Complainant 1 was one of her students. Witness 1 then approached the scene and told Complainant 1 to get all his stuff and go inside the library. Suspect 1 and Suspect 2 then fled the scene southbound in the 4400 block of Wisconsin Avenue, NW .

Here’s to teachers, as well as police officers, in the fight against crime! Learn how you can also help reduce crime at the Crime Prevention Training on March 11.

Until next time, be careful out there.
