Female student allegedly robbed at bus stop on Pennsylvania Avenue

Police are searching for two men who reportedly snatched “a few dollars” from a female student’s hand as she was waiting at a bus stop near campus.

Neither of the suspects were armed and were last seen fleeing east on Pennsylvania Avenue, according to an alert the University sent Thursday at about 2 a.m. The men allegedly robbed the student across the street from the GW Medical Faculty Associates building at 22nd Street and Pennsylvania Avenue.

One suspect is a skinny black man in his 20s with “tight cornrows and scruffy facial hair,” and was carrying a white bag, according to the alert. The other suspect is a black man in his 20s wearing black shorts and no shirt.

University Police Department Chief Kevin Hay did not immediately return a request for comment.
