Police Notes for Buckingham

Sept. 21: Attempted Robbery, 4000 block of N. 5th St. At approximately 9:05 p.m. on, a man was walking home when he noticed two males following him. When the victim reached his building, one of the suspects ran towards him, sprayed pepper spray in his eyes and demanded money. The victim screamed for help and the suspects fled.

An email the night of the attack from Miles Grant (author of “The Green Miles” blog):
My neighbor got mugged in front of our apartment tonight. The Green Girlfriend and I were watching the Red Sox game on my laptop when it happened. Fortunately our yelling scared the muggers off.…From what we heard, our neighbor ran an errand at the CVS at Pershing and Glebe, the attackers followed him up Glebe to Henderson/Quincy, then down 5th to our apartment….Fortunately he's OK and I don't think they got his wallet, but certainly makes you re-think living in an area that has apparently become a target for criminals (remember the robbery at the market across the intersection).

It was the Hyde Park Grocery and Laundry. Click the link and scroll down to Police Notes for more on that one. --ST

Sept. 18: Felony Hit and Run, S. Glebe Road at Arlington Boulevard. At approximately 1:40 p.m., a Volkswagon Jetta was stopped at a red light northbound on Glebe Road over Arlington Blvd when another vehicle struck the Jetta from behind. The suspect vehicle is described as possibly being a Nissan Pathfinder, either gold, beige or tan in color. The suspect vehicle fled the scene in an unknown direction. No injuries were sustained, but there was significant damage to the victim vehicle. The investigation is ongoing.
