D.C. police seek man who robbed check cashing store

D.C. police are asking for help identifying a man who robbed a check-cashing store in Southeast Washington on Oct. 15.

Police said the robbery occurred about 5:20 p.m. at Ace Check Cashing in the 3800 block of Pennsylvania Ave. SE. A surveillance video shows the man walking into the store and then walking out in a hurried manner.

He is described as a black man with a medium complexion and is said to be 27 to 30 years old. He has light brown eyes, a stocky build and a full beard, and was wearing a black short-sleeve shirt over a black long-john shirt, black jeans and a rolled-up black knit hat. He was carrying a black plastic bag.

Anyone with information is urged to call police at 202-727-9099 or text the department’s tip line at 50411. There is a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and a conviction.
