Last Wednesday, detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s First District announced that an arrest of a 17-year-old-male was made in reference to an “Assault With Intent to Rob while Armed (Gun) offense” that occurred on Sunday, August 28, 2022, in the 1000 block of H Street, Northeast. The victim of crime was Commanders running back Brian Robinson, who was shot twice in the leg. Today, Robinson’s agent Ryan Williams announced (tweet below) that a second suspect, 14-years-old, was arrested in the attempted armed robbery of Brian Robinson. Robinson recovered and returned to the field for the Commanders just six weeks later, playing in the team’s October 9th game.
Per MPD on 11/2: At approximately 5:28 pm on August 28, the suspects approached the victim at the 1000 block of H Street NE. The suspects brandished handguns and attempted to rob the victim. During the robbery attempt, one of the suspects fired a handgun, striking the victim. The suspects fled the scene in a vehicle without obtaining any property. The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. On Wednesday, November 2, 2022, pursuant to a DC Superior Court custody order, a 17-year-old juvenile male ( who was 16 at the time of the offense), of Northeast, DC, was arrested and charged with Assault with Intent to Rob while Armed (Gun).
A second suspect, 14-years old, has been arrested in the attempted armed robbery of Brian Robinson (@BrianR_4). We greatly appreciate the diligent work of the detectives and MPD. Brian is grateful for all of the support and looks forward to great things ahead with the @Commanders
