His alleged crime spree began May 21, when D.C. Metro Police were called and told by a victim that someone had approached them and told them to surrender their belongings. When the victim initially refused, the individual brandished a gun.

The next incident came about three days later in the middle of the afternoon, when two suspects approached an alleged victim as they rode bikes. The victim pushed the suspects, who then took off, but one of them allegedly pointed a gun in the victim’s direction, police said.
