A second man suspected of having a role in several armed robberies near the H Street corridor and in Northwest last month has been caught by a camera.

Police today distributed more photos in connection with six armed robberies, two of which happened near H Street NE and four of which occurred in Northwest on July 28.

The new images show a man with a white tank top and a floppy tan hat that covers his eyes. The man also has a tattoo on his arm.

The photos came about two weeks after authorities distributed images of another man, who wore a white garment that obscured most of his face.

Starting at about 12:15 a.m. on July 28, two men robbed someone at gunpoint near Chevy Chase Circle in Northwest, police said. Over the next two and a half hours, four more armed robberies involving two men happened in Northwest and near H Street NE. An armed robbery involving three men also occurred in Northwest.

Near the H Street corridor, the thieves struck on the 1200 block of G Street NE about 2:45 a.m. and on the 800 block of 11th Street NE less than 10 minutes later. The victims in both of the robberies had their cellphones stolen.

After the 11th Street robbery, the suspects got into a car and drove away.

Police said each of the six robberies involved two 20-to-25-year-old men with guns. One of them wore a brown safari or fisherman-style hat.

Authorities also are looking for a gold or tan older-model car that the suspects may have used.

Anyone who has information regarding this case should call police at 202-727-9099. Additionally, information may be submitted to the TEXT TIP LINE by text messaging 50411. The Metropolitan Police Department currently offers a reward of up to $10,000 to anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for a robbery committed in the District of Columbia.

    Council Member Charles Allen is working w/DC Police Department so there are more cops on H St. I’ve already seen them out there. As community members we should insist on this presence to keep us safe AND insist that said police presence is respectful and behave w/in proper standards of conduct (e.g. don’t shoot some crazy lady just bc she has a knife).

    Rather than just making snide remarks on articles, we should thoughtfully participate in our local democracy.

      Explain the level of force you would use when confronted with someone who lacks the ability to reason (aka “crazy”) who is also holding a knife.

      Please cross reference such use with every possible situation.

        Lots of options. Even a taser would be better than a gun.
