1st and K streets NW (Photo via Google Maps)Four masked men with guns robbed a pizza delivery man of his money near NoMa early this morning.

The thieves, who were armed with handguns and rifles, struck at 1st and K streets NW, police said. The robbery happened about 2:30 a.m.

A violent would-be robber also tried to steal a woman’s purse last night in Hill East, before a man came to her aid, police said. The attempted theft happened on the unit block of 14th Street NE about 10 p.m.

The suspect, who is a man, grabbed the victim from behind and attempted to use a knife to cut the strap of her purse, police said. The woman was then cut in the neck as she and the man struggled.

The man fled after a witness came out of his house to help the woman, police said.

A trio of female juveniles also snatched a woman’s purse in a violent robbery last night in the Capitol Hill area, police said. The theft occurred on the 1000 block of C Street NE about 10 p.m.

    “The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia temporarily blocked a decision made last month by U.S. District Judge Frederick J. Scullin Jr. that stopped the District from enforcing a key provision of its gun laws. That provision requires a person to state a “good reason” for carrying a weapon in order to obtain a permit from police.”

    This blocking decision is a good thing because crime is on a downward slope and nobody but law abiding citizens are armed in DC …right?. The mayor and police chief will soon have a city afraid to walk the streets after the sun goes down (and maybe while it’s up)…but everything is fine they say. We are easy picking for them folks…every one of us.

    Rifles? Holy s**t!
    Whoever came out of his house to help the lady being robbed deserves a medal. Or at least some Hong Kong Carryout.
