a storm
MARION DOSS/FLICKR

I was robbed on the 30N bus on the night of April 26 at 12:55 a.m. The crime was committed blocks away from the Capitol building, the bus stop near the  intersection of Constitution Avenue and 7th Street, NW. I sat at the end of the bus in a corner.  The male robber sat down on a seat in front of me and pulled my bag, which was at my feet, to him. He lifted it and ran out from the bus. The robber was accompanied by another man and a young lady. They all left together. “Stop the bus — my bag —robbery!” The driver pulled over and called the police. The driver, three other passengers and I waited there until Metro Transit Police Officer E. Ferrell arrived at 1:13 a.m. The officer listened to the driver and me.”Please, to connect the interpreter from Uzbek,” I said. But he said he did not have the opportunity to connect with an interpreter. Nonetheless, I provided a list of the 14 items that were in the bag that was stolen. The officer said that the incident was recorded, gave me the report number, and
said it would be available within five business days.

Usually I notice a special employee on each bus to ensure the safety of the driver and passengers. But this employee was not on this bus. Therefore, I believe that this robbery was planned in advance. In a large bag was my folder (case) with papers, documents and articles, and a Russian- English dictionary. I’m sure they were interested in my document folder. The real question is, who sent them? I have been robbed four times and stolen from 13 times between November 2012 and now. But the police did not investigate any of these crimes. Therefore, the crime against me continues.
