Three men also robbed a man at gunpoint near Gallaudet University in broad daylight yesterday, police said.

The armed robbery occurred on the 700 block of Florida Avenue NE about 12:30 p.m. Sunday.

The victim was in the area when the three men surrounded him, according to authorities. One of the men then put a gun to the victim’s head, while demanding money.

The men soon after took the victim’s wallet. They then ran to a car and drove away.

Police haven’t released detailed descriptions of the suspects.

    Maybe the Mayor will find the answer to our crime problem on her DC-tax paid trip to Cuba this week???

    Surely it is an amazing coincidence that nearly every violent crime committed on Capitol Hill is committed by the same demographic, i.e., same gender, same race, and same age range. Remarkable coincidence. Definitely not a cultural failure.
