As part of our SEE SOMETHING-SAY SOMETHING campaign, The Sixth Police Districts Patrol Service Area (PSA) 606 urges our business community, residents and visitors to increase your awareness of persons around you while getting into or out of your vehicle.
We are investigating individuals that are riding through our community looking for you to enter or exit your vehicle while being distracted by speaking or texting on a cellular telephone or PDA devices or placing items into or taking items out of your vehicles. Once distracted, these individuals will approach you from behind and rob you of your belongings and/or take your vehicle. These Robberies and Carjackings have been committed by individuals described by our victims as:
Black male suspects between the ages of 16-20 years of age, wearing dreadlock style hair styles, with 3 to 4 riding together in cars looking for potential victims.
Should you see individuals matching this description or actions that make you suspicious or make you feel uncomfortable, immediately call 9-1-1 and report your LOCATION, actions that made you suspicious, clothing DESCRIPTIONS of these individual(s) or the MAKE, MODEL, COLOR and TAG NUMBER of those vehicles cruising repeatedly thru the neighborhood that cause you concern.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD YOU TAKE ANY ENFORCEMENT ACTIONS ON YOUR OWN.
Immediately call or ask that others call 9-1-1 for you and request an immediate law enforcement response.
The Sixth Police District and PSA 606 also request that while at your place of business or at home, turn on all outside lights in both the front and back of your home and/or business after 5 PM to illuminate your business, home, driveway or parking space and to cast additional light sources toward our sidewalks and roadways.
Should you have any questions, comments or concerns, please contact Patrol Service Area 606 Lieutenant Mark Hodge via E-Mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 202-489-8338.
PSA 606 will be hosting our Monthly Patrol Service Area Community Meeting on Wednesday, October 20, 2010 at 6:00 PM at the Lutheran Church of the Holy Comforter, 3319 Alabama Avenue, SE located on the corner of Alabama and Branch Avenues, SE.
