    So many groups to round up this month.

  • Captain_Obvious

    Why would 2 drunk guys be in a store at 3:45 am in Rosslyn ?

    • Captain_Obvious

      This is a perfectly legitimate question, by the way.

      • wellDuh

        “inside of a store for no apparent reason. ”

        obviously they were inside the store for no apparent reason.

        • Captain_Obvious

          according to police, “no apparent reason”. According to the 2 people involved, there was a reason. What’s your point ?

          if this occurred at a 7-11, why wouldn’t the report indicate that ?

          • drax

            Not so obvious to Capt. Obvious.

          • Captain_Obvious

            yes it is.

  • Rudy Gazudy

    I think we can safely blame bath salts for most of the above crimes.

  • Hey Brah!

    What store is open at 3:45am? The 1600 block of Wilson has Red Hot and Blue and Rays to the Third. Can’t imagine either of those places is open that late.

    • Jibber

      Uhhh, hey brah, maybe the 7-11 across the street?

      • Hey Brah!

        Ahhh yes, that makes sense. Apparently I’m a bit of a dumdum.

        • Aaron

          Don’t feel too bad; I was convinced this all took place inside the CVS. I keep forgetting that a 7-11 re-opened on that block.

  • boo

    probably a 7-11

  • bum

    It’s really getting tough to be a criminal these days. I had no idea it takes three people with assault rifles to steal a Droid off of someone.

    • wellDuh

      they used their hands to steal the droid. They had assault rifles with them to keep the gubbermint from taking away our liberty.

    • drax

      It does when you’re making up a story to cover what really happened to your phone, like perhaps it being stolen when you tried to buy drugs or something.

  • Downtown Kandahar

    the subjects had assault rifles and were wearing black ski masks. robbed a victim and took his Droid HTC EVO 3D cell phone.

    • Police Report

      Could also be for insurance purposes. If you have phone insurance, they sometimes make you file a police report in order to get a replacement phone. Not sure the need for the over-elaborate story though.

  • JamesE

    Couple of bro on bro hate crimes in Clarendon

    • FrederickS

      I think you mean black on white in Arlington. All the suspects always have the same physical description.

      • JohnB2

        James is using Bro in the Brah sense. As in, recently graduated middle/upper class WASP males, likely driving a leased BMW and wearing brown flip flops with plaid cargo shorts.

  • Bro Cam
    • JMB

      “charged with unlawful wounding” – next time, get a license first!

      • fedworker

        I was waiting to see if the article included “PMoran” and “girlfriend” in the report. No such luck.

    • Not Me

      She appears to have been doing a good bit of wailing just prior to the photo. Not sure why as she was the stabber, not the stabee.

      • george

        Stabee must be a bad breaker-upper

  • Coraline

    Is anyone else more than a little alarmed by this? This is pretty near where I live and I think that’s a lot of firepower over a cell phone.

    ROBBERY, 12/28/12, 2400 block of S. Lowell Street. Between 9:44 pm and 9:48 pm on December 28, three subjects allegedly robbed a victim and took his Droid HTC EVO 3D cell phone. The victim claims that two of the suspects were males and one was a female. He also alleged that the subjects had assault rifles and were wearing black ski masks.

    • BS Detector

      I’m not sure I believe the victim there. An assault rifle for a phone? I think the guy probably made that up, or mistook their swiffer mop’s handle for a gun barrel.

      If they truly had rifles though… woah.

      • Coraline

        I am suspicious too and I really really hope you are right.

    • KalashniKEV

      He probably got drunk, peed his pants, ruined the phone, and needed a cover story to tell his mom.

      • drax

        Nah – went to buy drugs and ended up robbed instead.

        I like how even the police report is skeptical of his story.

  • Deadite

    Justin Tchabo will henceforth be known as Justin Cha Bro.

    • WeiQiang

      Just Brahbo ?

  • SomeGuy

    Anyone care to enlighten me about the distinctions between “Unlawful Wounding” and “Malicious Wounding?” I’m always curious to know why girlfriends getting upset and stabbing their boyfriends tend to just be “unlawful” (not at all malicious, right?), but under so many other circumstances, the woundings are “malicious.”

    • JohnB2

      Someone posted a link to it in one of the recent crime report threads. It has to do with intent to wound vs intent to ‘seriously’ wound, or something like that.

      • Lorena Bobbitt

        I only intended to wound his pecker, not seriously decapitate it.

  • Griselda Y. Saravia

    Las Chreesmas I gabe ju mah hart
    Pero like da bery next day ju gabe it away :( :( :(

    • Karen

      Booooooooo. How do you know Griselda had an accent? You transplants need to stop mucking up the culture in Arlington.
