Theft from auto

June 21, between 9 and 10 a.m.
2323 Wisconsin Avenue
Midge left her purse in her shopping cart at Whole Foods at 2323 Wisconsin and later discovered her wallet missing. A month later, Raquel had the same experience. The victims were from Cleveland Park and Georgetown, respectively, which makes sense: regular readers of the Glover Park Gazette know to keep their purses zipped and within sight at Whole Foods.

2400 block of Wisconsin Avenue
Tony and Frank were walking south on Wisconsin below Calvert Street when they saw three men sitting on a bench. Tony said “What’s up” to the men, and they got up and punched him until he fell to the ground. Then they ran off, and Frank took Tony home. Tony “thought nothing of the assault,” according to a police report he filed the following week. Frank also told police he “saw no reason” to notify them of the incident at the time.
