Investigators with the Metropolitan Police Department have made an arrest in connection with a brazen daylight robbery that occurred over a month ago in the city’s Northwest sector. Details emerged that on May 24, a man was robbed near a bank on 14th Street, having his cell phone and wallet case forcibly taken.

Following a lead generated by steadfast detective work, 19-year-old Shaun Mabry of Northwest, DC, was apprehended this past Tuesday, according to the MPD's official statement. Mabry is now facing a charge of Robbery (Snatch) for his alleged involvement in the incident. The arrest marks a closure for the victim, who experienced the misfortune of being targeted in what should have been a safe space, near their financial institution.

The original event took place in broad daylight. Yet, the suspect managed to execute the snatch and run without immediate interception. MPD has not released specific details on how Mabry became a suspect in the case or what evidence led to his apprehension. They did acknowledge, however, that the arrest was the culmination of an investigation that spanned several weeks.

As for Mabry, his arraignment details have yet to be published, and it is unclear if he has obtained or been assigned legal representation at this time. While an arrest has been made, the MPD typically encourages anyone with further information related to the case, to come forward. Any additional context could potentially aid in the judicial process and ensure that justice is appropriately served.
