Police think a rash of armed robberies in Northwest D.C. may be linked.
D.C. Police believe the same suspects may have been involved in the two gunpoint robberies which happened last night around 11 p.m.
One was at River Rd. and 46th St., the other in the 5000 block of Wisconsin Av., both in the Friendship Heights area. The victims told detectives there were three robbers, at least one of whom wore a mask.
Police say another robbery happened about 5:30 p.m. yesterday afternoon in the 3800 of Warren St -- that’s about a mile south of Friendship Heights. Authorities say three robbers were also involved, but no weapons were used.
D.C. Police have been dealing with a rash of street muggings and robberies in the Friendship Heights and Tenleytown neighborhoods since late last year.
Also in Northwest overnight, an armed robbery occured near the intersection of 11th and W Street, and another robbery happened on the 1200 block of Capitol Street.
