These two “teens” were on a mini crime spree…
D.C. police have charged two teens in connection with a brutal attack on a 69-year-old dog walker that included thrashing her in the head with a pipe.
Police charged 16-year-old Kaveyon Andrews of Northeast D.C. and 17-year-old Thadduse Hartridge of Southeast D.C. with assault with intent to rob while armed and armed carjacking.
According to police, the youths will be charged as adults.
Police say the pair approached the victim at her vehicle in the 1400 block of Euclid Street, Northwest on Thursday and attacked her. Video shows one of the suspects striking the victim in the head repeatedly with a pipe.
They tried to steal the car, but were unable to start it. The pair then ran off with some of the victim’s property.
Police also charged Andrews and Hartridge in connection with two other robberies.
They say the pair attacked a victim with an unknown object in the 1000 block of Irving Street, Northwest and ran off with the victim’s property on Dec. 12.
According to police they attacked another victim in the 3000 block of Sherman Avenue, Northwest on Jan. 16, brandishing a knife before running away with the victim’s property.
What sweet boys…
Police say the pair approached the victim at her car in the 1400 block of Euclid Street, Northwest around 1:12 p.m. Thursday.
According to the police report, the two men pulled the victim from her car and tried to drive off but she began screaming because she had dogs in her care in the car.
That’s when they beat her, hitting her on top of the head with a pipe. A Good Samaritan approached and they ran off, grabbing the victim’s purse as they left.
The woman was left bleeding on the ground. The dogs were left shaking in the middle of the street.
“They were obviously trying to take the car, that seems to be corroborated from many different ways and she resisted that because she was very worried about the dogs and she pushed them away for the dogs and then they beat her for it. It’s horrible — they didn’t get the car, they really just beat her senseless and ran away,” said Caesar Layton, who is one of the woman’s clients.
