Three people suspected of attacking a man and robbing him in Hill East last week have appeared on surveillance video.

The man was robbed May 20 about 9 p.m. on the 1200 block of Walter Street SE, about two blocks south of Lincoln Park, police said. He was hit from behind and robbed when he was on a walk through the residential area.

The three persons of interest, who appear to be juvenile males, are seen in a video distributed by police yesterday walking on a sidewalk in front of a house twice. One of the individuals has a messenger bag.

The robbery happened in Police Service Area 107, which includes Eastern Market and Lincoln Park.

District crime statistics show 31 robberies were reported in the area from Jan. 1 to May 28. During the same period the previous year, 18 of the crimes were reported.

    “District crime statistics show 31 robberies were reported in the area from Jan. 1 to May 28. During the same period the previous year, 18 of the crimes were reported”
    So a roughly 50% increase…interesting. I guess the “wolves” know where the “lambs/weak zebra” easy pickings are. Thieves fear being caught or hurt, chances are neither will happen when they strike like this.
    A complete UNSAT on this city that a person can’t walk down the street at 9pm without incident, let alone have the ability to protect his/her person.
    I assume now this person has “good reason” and proof of a criminal act that would allow a CCW to be issued. But…since this was a “random” attack, I guess the COP could say this person has nothing to fear since the chances of being robbed again is low: DENIED.
    ANY person reading this comment could have been THIS victim.
