MPD Seeks to ID Suspect in Daylight Armed Robbery on Wylie

 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.  Your assistance is appreciated by your community. CCN #17-165-980.

Anyone who can identify this individual or who has knowledge of this incident should take no action but call police at (202) 727-9099 or text your tip to the Department's TEXT TIP LINE to 50411.

this is disturbing on many levels. glad the two victims are physically ok. it's astounding how many losers there are on the streets. i hope they catch that armed, dimwitted moron. it's unfortunate that these types of people are unable to recognise real opportunities in life. but then, it's the old argument: do stupid people know they're stupid?

unfortunately, these kinds of incidents are hard to completely prevent. i'm looking for a learning experience from this video/incident.... maybe i'm dumb, but i'm not finding much of an answer. imagine how the victim must feel...... i'd be thinking that i'd move to another area (if i lived there).... that i'd stay and wear a body camera every time i leave the house... that i'd get the neighborhood to set up cameras everywhere on that street..... that i'd learn how to memorize all my surroundings (including license plates) every time i walk on a street......

the victim was smart to give up his bag to the moron with the gun. armed dimwits are not worth confronting, especially with a child nearby. the halfwit with the gun probably knew that, because of the kid, it would be an easy way to steal from a pedestrian. i hope that the bag contained nothing of value. in fact, i hope it contained something that would either a) enrage the assailant, b) educate the buffoon with a gun, or c) provide solid evidence leading to his apprehension.

chances are that none of the above will ever materialise. man i would love to hear from the victim. i can't imagine what might be circulating through his brain. the whole decision sets that must be presenting themselves because of this.

all because of some failure with a gun.

i also have to wonder what thoughts the birdbrain with a gun must have had before AND after that situation. was he proud? did his success give him an impetus to do steal again? was he worried there might have been cameras? was he remorseful? likely, the only thought going through his head was probably a waste of the few neurosynapses he has in the mostly vacant area behind his eyes and between his ears - just below the area that he uses to hold his hats in place, when he wears one, which is only sometimes because, hey, you don't wear a hat in church, because that's not respectful.

but i digress...

is there any takeaway from this that might be positive and lead to some sort of civic progression?

could MPD upgrade their cameras?

OMG, these cameras produce pixelated video like this minecraft.

MPD, Please upgrade to 4K Video, store it locally, and send compressed video
to central. Then if something happens, dump the local memory.

All i can say is a blotchy guy threatened a blotchy person.
I think the blotchy guy might be black.

Can't we get useable video like Metro Bus?

Brave men you must be wiling to put your life on the line.
If that person took a bullet for us all or injured the criminal it would have prevented the next crime, Since this one was so easy he obviously went on to commit more.

We need to pass laws that make cohabitants guilty as well. This will insure good neighbors!
