Makemie Place SWA man was robbed by a group of six people near Amidon-Bowen Elementary School in Southwest last night.

The man was on the 900 block of Makemie Place SW about 8:55 p.m. when he was surrounded by six men between the ages of 16 and 21, according to an email from Metropolitan Police Department First District Lieutenant Brian A. Murphy. One of the men took the victim’s wallet before all six suspects fled toward the 1100 block of 4th Street SW.

The suspects were described as black males, 16-21 years old wearing dark clothing. The robbery occurred near the site where a woman was robbed on Jan. 7.

  • This is so aggravating. We need more security cameras monitoring our neighborhood.

    This is ridiculous! Does it take that many men to rob an innocent bystander?! You hear of so many of these “group muggings” these days. We need more police presence on our streets and also more neighborhood crime watch dogs! Folks, if you see something. Say something. Don’t just stand there watching the crime take place. Call 911! It’s a known fact that if we all became more involved in our communities as crime watch dogs, crime would decrease. Bottom line is cops can’t be everywhere, every time. We all need to do our part!

    What is the DC Law regarding Pepper Spray? I’ve heard it’s illegal, which, if true, is pure rubbish. I don’t advocate for gunplay, but a pepper blast to the eyes might change a mugger’s tune. My opinion on the Pack Mentality is that they are gutless turds. Simple.
