The FBI joined the investigation into an attempted armored truck robbery in northwest D.C. Thursday.

A Brink’s truck was making a pickup at the National Education Association headquarters café in the 1200 block of 16th Street just before noon when two masked men approached with guns drawn. One pointed a gun at the head of a guard.

Another guard stepped in, and the men fled on 16th Street toward Montgomery County, Md., in a blue 2004 Porsche Cayenne that police said was carjacked in Arlington, Va., Wednesday night. The tags are XCN5171 or XCN6171.

“The cafeteria is opened Monday through Thursday and we believe they were after the proceeds for the week,” said Andrew Linebaugh, of the NEA.

The Brink’s employees were not injured.
