Visitation Prep Students Mugged Friday Afternoon
Two Georgetown Visitation Prep students were mugged around 3:30 p.m., Friday, April 15, in Pomander Walk along 3300 block of Volta Place. The two female students were grabbed by a boy and pushed into the alley of small townhouses off Volta Place and were mugged by two girls.
The assailants stole a phone and ran away when a neighbor observing the crime came on the scene. The visibly shaken students were uninjured and remained at a Volta Place corner to speak with police and be attended to by school officials, as commuter traffic idled on 34th Street.
The Metropolitan Police Department describes the suspects — two of whom were wearing Guy Fawkes masks on top of their heads — as black, 14 to 18 years old and averaging five-foot-seven or five-feet-eight with thin or medium builds.
