The following crime alert I’ve received from City’s Public Service Director Bob Ryan. The incident happened on last Monday, at 9:30p.m.
The 22 year old male student victim was sitting outside of 240 Old Leonardtown ( http://tinyurl.com/39yx89m) on a bench working on his laptop. The suspect approached him and snatched his laptop away from him. The victim grabbed onto the laptop to stop the suspect from taking it when he was punched in the face causing him to release the laptop. The suspect ran towards Lot 16 where he was joined by the second suspect. The suspect dropped the laptop in Lot 16D and along with the second suspect fled towards Rhode Island Avenue. The laptop was recovered from the lot.
There are two suspects (1) Black male, approximately 20 years old, thin build, wearing dark shorts and a dark shirt and (2) Black male, approximately 20 years old, thin build, wearing dark shorts and a white shirt.
