Jan. 10: Armed Robbery, 15th Street Sunoco


I received a message this morning from the MPD Second District Yahoo! Groups listserv. It appears that a customer was robbed early Saturday morning at the Sunoco gas station at the corner of 15th and U Streets NW. The staff at this same station were robbed on December 3. Here’s the message from the listserv:

On 1.10.09 at 4:50 am the complainant reported she was at a gas station in the 2000 block of 15th Street, NW, when she was approached by Suspect 1 and Suspect 2. The suspects initiated a conversation with her when Suspect 1 produced a weapon and demanded her belongings—cell phone and U.S. Currency. The complainant complied. Suspect 1 and Suspect 2 fled on foot east on U Street, NW, towards 14th Street. 

Be careful when you are pumping gas, particularly at night. Remember that you are in the process of handling your wallet, credit cards and cash. Robbers know this! Be alert.
