The Metropolitan Police Department and the Georgetown University Department of Public Safety are investigating two burglaries that occurred Friday evening near the intersection of 36th and O Streets.
Investigators say that a Georgetown student was sitting in her living room in the 1400 block of 36th Street Northwest shortly before 10 p.m. when an unknown male emerged from an adjacent closet. When asked what he was doing, the suspect replied that he was looking for a party before fleeing the scene. The suspect is described as a black male in his early twenties, standing six feet tall and wearing a black North Face hooded jacket with black sunglasses.
At 10:30 p.m., another Georgetown student reported arriving at her home in the 3600 block of O Street and hearing a noise from upstairs. The student found an intruder in her bedroom, who fled the house after the student screamed. The suspect in this burglary is described as a man of an unknown race, standing six feet tall and wearing a dark hooded jacket, white gloves, and a mask over his face.
No injuries were reported in either case. As of Saturday morning, the burglaries were being treated as separate incidents. Anyone with information is asked to call the Georgetown University Department of Public Safety at (202) 687-4343.
