Police car(Updated at 3:20 p.m.) Two armed robberies happened last night near the H Street corridor, about a block from each other.

The robberies occurred on the 1300 block of G Street NE about 6:30 p.m. and the 1200 block of F Street NE about 8:45 p.m., police said.

In the first robbery, a woman was walking when a teenage boy approached her and flashed a knife, according to authorities. He took her cell phone.

Two thieves then robbed someone on F Street. One of the robbers showed a knife before they took something from the victim.

Police have arrested a suspect in connection with the F Street robbery, but haven’t identified the individual. It wasn’t clear if the two robberies were related.

Authorities haven’t released any additional information about the crimes.

A violent robbery also happened in Hill East yesterday, police said.

Three robbers struck near 19th Street and Massachusetts Avenue SE about 5:30 p.m.

Hamilton White, 26, and Kelvin Carter, 29, were arrested in connection with the robbery, according to authorities.

Patricia Cresta-Savage, a lawyer for White, noted in an email her client was charged with a misdemeanor. But she didn’t comment further.

Lloyd Malech, Carter’s lawyer, couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.

A third suspect also was arrested with White and Carter. But police haven’t identified that individual.

    Agree – I like getting these updates of the crimes in the area.
    Hillnow – it’d be a nice follow up story to see if any of these people ever do any time or if they’re just out on the street after posting bond, or get probation with no time, etc.

    Always glad to share any news I have about crime. Whenever I find out what happens to suspects in crimes, I report that information. But unfortunately, that information isn’t always obtainable.
