Disturbing Video of 77 Market Vandalism and Robbery
Last Saturday, June 27th, there was a horrible robbery at 77 Market located at Georgia Avenue and Irving Street, NW. I know many in the neighborhood may already know about this, but I’m sure other don’t. In reading the report and watching the video on Fox 5, this is far more disturbing that what one would normally think of with a robbery. According to the Fox 5 report:
It was caught on camera — a dangerous duo struck a Park View convenience store. But this was far from your typical stick up. There was no gun — just fury — enough to turn the store upside down. And the store’s cashier is just thankful to be alive after the close encounter.
I’ll definitely be working with Commissioner Rashida Brown and MPD to address what appears as a serious crime trend in the area. I know that for the past few months that crimes data from the DC Crime Map shows an overall increase in nearly all statistical areas. I’ve had a few leads as to why, and want to make sure that the community works with MPD to solve this persistent problem.Crime, MPD, Theft, vandalism comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
