Assault and Cell Phone Theft 1200 Block of 10th Street Sunday about 11AM

Single woman talking on cell phone walking down the 1200 Block of 10th Street.  Two young teenage males in white t-shirts assaulted the woman and took her cell phone.

They threw the cell phone into a nearby waiting car which drove off (witnesses got the plate number).
Other witnesses saw the assailants and one followed them on the run for a number of blocks finally losing them in the Mt. Vernon Square Metro Station.  Police were called and a full report taken.

I saw the tail end of a similar assault (looked like a punch in the face kind of thing) and cell phone theft from a jogger near the corner of 5th and O Street a few weeks ago - in that case the person doing the assault was very well dressed and ran to a waiting late model BMW which speed off.

All - be careful out there.  If talking and texting in public remain aware of your surroundings and this method of operation for stealing cell phones!

BTW this is being written from Buttercream a nice cool place to hang out and what cinnamon rolls!
