The citizen crime prevention group Guardian Angels has stepped up its patrols along the 14th Street NW corridor after a local resident was badly beaten the afternoon of May 11. The victim had confronted another man for littering outside his apartment building, according to police.
The Guardian Angels say they have been patrolling along the 14th street corridor as a result of that beating, and will make citizens arrest when warranted.
Residents in the area say they do not receive enough police patrols.
