A District teen has been sentenced to serve 32 months in prison for an attempted robbery at a bus stop in Northwest Washington this past spring.
Samuel Zepeda, 18, and two other men allegedly attempted to rob a man around 10:30 p.m. on April 21 while the victim was standing at a bus stop at 16th and Quincy streets NW.
Zepeda allegedly pulled out a kitchen knife and pointed it at the victim while demanding money. Authorities said that the victim asked how much money he wanted, and Zepeda said he wanted it all.
The victim tried to escape by running across the street into traffic. Zepeda allegedly chased him with the knife, but the victim called 911.
When police arrived, the victim identified Zepeda, who was walking down the street.
Zepeda pleaded guilty in May to a charge of assault with intent to commit robbery. After serving his 32-month prison term, Zepeda will be placed on two years of supervised release.
