D.C. police are searching for two men who robbed money couriers at least four times this month as they tried to make bank deposits.
Three of the robberies occurred at the same location in the 1300 block of 4th Street in Northeast D.C., and a fourth about a mile away. In each instance, police said the suspects have run after and confronted money couriers while they were attempting to make deposits at a bank. The men have snatched envelopes or bags containing large sums of money away from the couriers and made off with the cash.
The Metropolitan Police Department released video of one such robbery, which occurred Friday. In surveillance video taken from the PNC Bank located at 1348 4th Street Northeast, a man in a white T-shirt and black baseball cap is seen dashing out of a car after a woman in the bank parking lot. He runs up behind the woman and snatches a bag away from her as she struggles to hold on.
The robberies near the PNC Bank occurred Aug. 12, Friday and again on Tuesday. A fourth robbery occurred Monday in the 2100 block of Bladensburg Road in Northeast.
Police describe the two suspects as black men between the ages of 25 and 30 years old. One of the men is 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall, with a slim build and short hair. The second man is 5 feet 8 inches tall, 160 pounds with dreadlocks.
