Robbery reported near GW Hospital

A man allegedly robbed another man of his wallet Saturday in the 2300 block of I Street.

The suspect, a 5-foot-10 black man between 55 and 60 years old, reportedly took the man’s wallet from his front pocket as he was sleeping on a park bench in the Eye Street Mall. The suspect was last seen walking toward Washington Circle at about 3:40 a.m., according to a GW Alert.

Campus and city police are searching for the suspect, who was wearing blue jeans, a white short-sleeved shirt and “possibly” a white hospital band and a blue hospital band on his wrist.
