Robbery 968 St. Charles Av Narrative:

On February 2, 2017, approximately 20 minutes past midnight, police were dispatched to a pedestrian robbery that occurred on the 900-block of St. Charles Ave NE.

A female victim who had parked her car on Frederica St was robbed by two males as she reached the top of the steps to enter her apartment on St. Charles Ave.  One suspect pointed a handgun at her and demanded her belongings.  The victim used a code to open the door to her building and tried to get away from the suspects, but they followed her in.  The victim tripped on the steps inside the entrance and hit her knee. The suspect took the victim’s purse, including her ID, credit cards, and a Samsung phone (no tracking available) and fled the building – the victim could not be sure if the suspects went East or South from the apartment.

The victim stated that she did not notice the males standing around anywhere when she was crossing the street or walking up the step of the apartment building and only saw them when they confronted her with the gun.

Suspect 1 was described as a black male between 18-20 years old, approximately 5'8'' tall with a very small frame and no facial hair.  The suspect was wearing a light gray hoodie with the hood on, so she could not see his hair.  The suspect was talking very quietly, barely above a whisper, and had a black semi-automatic handgun.  The victim did not get a clear look at suspect 2.  She believed he was also a black male but could not provide a further description.

Burglary 895 Adair Av Narrative:

On January 30, 2017, police were dispatched to a burglary call at a vacant residence on the 800-block of Adair Ave NE.  The property owner (victim) and a witness met police and advised that someone had removed a stainless steel wine chiller valued at approximately $2,000 from the kitchen of the home. The victim stated that a similar burglary of the property had occurred in November, and he had changed the locks on all the entrances and installed an alarm system, but the alarm system had been tampered with and was inactive on this date.  There was no sign of forced entry to the residence, but the wires to the alarm system had been cut
A witness observed a newer-model white Ford Econoline work van parked in the driveway of the victim’s residence.  The witness saw an unknown male exit the front door of the property with a stainless steel wine chiller on a hand truck.  The male placed the wine chiller in the van, and fled the scene before officers arrived. The suspect was described as a heavy-set male, average height, wearing a blue security shirt with a badge, a blue hat, and dark pants.  The license plate to the van was covered with a white material so the witness was not able to see it.  The witness provided police with a photograph of the male suspect exiting the property.  No useable fingerprints were found at the scene.

Reminder:  All members call 911 first if you see a crime in progress or a suspicious person or activity, and then call the FBAC Phone.

If you see someone or something suspicious please report it to the police.  When driving or out walking keep an eye out in the neighborhood, what you see and report just might prevent a crime.
