I just wanted to give people a heads up about this if you are walking around the area post swim alone, be aware of your surroundings.
But this came through one of the Tenlytown neighborhood listserv's this evening. And unfortunately this is not an isolated incident. There have been a few armed robberies in the area at night this past year. Just because it's upper NWDC, doesn't mean that bad things don't happen. As Mad Eye Moody says - CONSTANT VIGILANCE!
Tonight (12/7) an AU student was robbed about 9:15 pm at gunpoint on Nebraska between Albemare and Brandywine (ie across from Wilson); according to police the victim was approached by 3 young African-American males in ski masks; police believed the suspects were seen leaving on the Metro heading toward Gallery Place. The formal police report will hopefully have more details.
Thanks for the warning! I know a lot of us swim up there and often walk to the metro or back to our cars solo.
