Police today have distributed a video of three men wanted in an armed robbery on the H Street corridor.
The footage is connected to a robbery in which three thieves robbed someone at knifepoint on the 1300 block of H Street NE Monday afternoon, according to authorities. The block includes the Atlas Performing Arts Center, Rock & Roll Hotel and Maketto.
The Metropolitan Police Department tweeted Monday that police were looking for three men in Eastern High School uniforms in connection with the robbery. But Eastern principal Rachel Skerritt said the three men in the video don’t appear to attend the school and weren’t wearing its uniform.
The men all wore similar green shirts and jeans, which aren’t worn by Eastern students. One of them also is holding a belt and appears to be wearing a cape of some sort.
It wasn’t clear what school or organization might use the outfits as a uniform, Skerritt said.
The 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 violent offense, including armed robbery, committed in the District of Columbia. Your assistance is appreciated by your community.
Anyone who can identify these individuals or who has knowledge of this incident should take no action but call police at 202-727-9099 or text your tip to the Department’s TEXT TIP LINE at 50411.
