Police report #1
"Robbery occurred in the 3400 block of Connecticut Ave NW between the hours of 7:45 am and 7:46 am. Patron reports she was pushed from behind and that her groceries were taken form her."
Police report #2
"Unlawful entry occurred in the 2800 block of Northampton Street NW between the hours of 7:30 pm and 8:00 pm. A babysitter reports while in the apartment, a subject entered the apartment through an unlocked door. The subject wanted food and the sitter asked him to leave and he did. Nothing was taken."
Not money. Not electronics. But food. These two crimes make you wonder: Is having to steal food a symptom of a bigger problem in Washington, DC?
