D.C. police are looking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect who robbed three transgender women at gunpoint in a span of three days.
The modus operandi was the same in each of the armed robberies, which happened in Northeast D.C., in the early morning hours: the suspect gets out of a vehicle, approaches the woman, brandishes a gun, demands property and flees in a dark-colored Jeep SUV.
According to a news release, D.C. police believe the same man is responsible for the three crimes:
- Approximately 3:50 a.m., on Monday, July 22, in the 900 block of 2nd Street, Northeast.
- Approximately 2:14 a.m., on Wednesday, July 24, in the 600 block of K Street, Northeast.
- Approximately 2:55 a.m., also on July 24, in the 5500 block of Hunt Place, Northeast.
Police describe the suspect as a black male in his 20s or 30s, approximately 5 feet, 9 inches in height, medium build, wearing brown or tan overalls, with a black skull cap.
Anyone who can identify the suspect or has knowledge of the incident should take no action, but call police, at (202) 727-9099 or text a tip to 50411. D.C. police are offering a reward up to $10,000 to anyone who provides information which leads to an arrest and conviction.
