Police are seeking the public's help to identify a vehicle and person of interest in an armed robbery on Wylie Street NE on just before 12:30 pm on Sunday, September 24th. About 30 seconds into the video you can see a kid move into view from the bottom of the screen as a man advances in the direction of the kid from the other side of the screen. The child pauses and appears to wait for an adult who's following him. As that adult appears the man from before swoops in and apparently robs the second adult as the child looks on. The suspect trots off bags in hand in the direction of the car.
The Metropolitan Police 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.
