Crimes of the Week: More Bad Behavior at Restaurants, Boys in a Fistfight

This is another in our series of excerpts from the Metropolitan Police Department's daily crime reports. Last week's highlights (or lowlights, to put it more accurately) included a suspect lookout for two women who threatened a waitress at a local restaurant, an incident which began after the waitress asked them about the very small tip they were leaving. This week it's an arrest report of a man who actually threatened to kill not one but two restaurant employees. It sounds like it's getting dangerous to wait tables these days...

On Monday, September 19, 2011, at 6:23 p.m. a Felony Threats offense occurred in the 1400 block of U St., N.W. (PSA 208) and was subsequently reported to the MPD.

The witness reported that a subject became belligerent after being asked to leave the establishment. He threatened to return and kill two of the employees. The MPD was summoned and responded to the scene. The suspect was detained, subsequently arrested and charged accordingly. This is a closed case.


And now for the fistfight started by a teenage boy:

On 9/16/11, there was a verbal argument reported between two juveniles at Wisconsin and M Street. The argument turned into a physical altercation. The suspect struck the complainant with a closed fist and kicked him, causing cuts and bruises to the complainant. The suspect fled the scene; he is described as a 15-17 year old black male, approximately 5'6" in height, 150-160 lbs., with medium dreads.
