Police said the crime occurred on the 1000 block of 10th St. NE around 4:50 a.m. yesterday. That street is just one block from Gallaudet University and two blocks from the H Street corridor.
According to police, the assailant approached a man in a car and started asking for change. At some point, the request for change turned into an argument, according to police.
“I wanna be like you, I wanna be like you,” and “give me your girl,” the assailant said to the driver, according to the police report.
The suspect then pulled out an object, possibly a gun, hidden in a “black baseball hat with a plastic bag inside of it,” police said. The victim reported hearing a “pop sound” before seeing his rear left passenger window shatter, according to the report.
The victim sped away unharmed.
Police did not immediately provide a lookout for the suspect.
