MAKING IT WORSE. FRIDAY, MARCH 6 at MIDNIGHT. The GLLU responded to a club at 1800 Half Street SW when they caught wind of "a disorderly customer," who "was inside the business and assaulted several employees." The man was arrested after refusing to leave, but he wasn't finished—when he was transported to the First District, "during processing, he assaulted two civilian cell block technicians, causing minor injuries."
BAD BREAKUP. SATURDAY, MARCH 7 at 2:15 A.M. Police responded to a report of "a roommate dispute" in an apartment on the 2400 block of 16th Street NW. No "criminal act was committed" by either roomie, but they did commit a big relationship faux pas: "The men previously were involved in a romantic relationship, but continued to reside together despite the termination of the relationship."
DO NOT DISTURB. SUNDAY, MARCH 8 at 3:30 a.m. Police responded to the 1100 block of New Hampshire Ave. NW for an assault. There, they located "a male victim, who was not injured." He had met the suspect on P Street, then invited him back to his New Hampshire Ave. hotel room. "Once there, the suspect demanded money from the victim, who refused. A struggle ensued and the suspect made good his escape with the victim’s driver’s license and credit cards." The suspect's deets: "a black male in his thirties, approximately 6’3” tall, 200 pounds, with a dark complexion."
