A group of teenagers wanted for a violent robbery in Hill East last month have appeared on video.

Police are looking for 10 teenage boys suspected of attacking and robbing someone May 30 on the 1400 block of Pennsylvania Avenue SE, near the Potomac Avenue Metro station. The robbery happened at about 11:15 p.m. that day, police said.

A video police released yesterday appears to show a person punching someone near a bus stop. Several people then run toward the person under attack and appear to hit and kick the individual.

The crowd eventually disperses as a person lays on the sidewalk.

    Yes. With all the technology available how in the hell are we still having to look at this almost useless footage . Come on people!

    i told them to stand in front of the camera, but they were too busy, punching and kicking the individual, and when i asked them to do it again closer to the camera, they said retakes were not in their contract. next time we will shoot (as in film, not shoot with guns) in the daytime.

    More wilding; it’ll only get more flagrant. A whole crew of adolescents targeting one victim for robbery. The police have to be nice, so no more interventional policing. Expect more, as school gets out next week and the summer heats up. Hopefully the next one won’t be you.

      How about proportional responses? This was an act of violence, so a physical response would seem to be appropriate. What happened to Eric Garner, Freddie Gray, Tamir Rice, and Walter Scott served no helpful purpose in policing neighborhoods. I hope that most officers due not suffer from your all or nothing mentality and that the ones that do will find new careers..
