One arrest after August armed robbery at Southeast D.C. shoe store

Police have arrested one man and are seeking a second suspect in the August armed robbery of a Southeast D.C. shoe store.

Police say two men, one with a handgun, entered the City Beats store in the 3000 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Ave. at about 6:12 p.m on Aug. 9, taking shoes and money.

On Wednesday evening, they announced the arrest of Irv Duff, 21, of no fixed address, on charges of armed robbery.

A second man was still being sought, said police, who earlier released surveillance images and video of the robbery. The second suspect was described as a black male in his early 20s who stood between 5 ft. 9 in. and 5 ft. 11 in. tall with a slim build, light complexion and short hair, and who wore a teal and gray shirt, blue jeans and a black skullcap during the robbery.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call 202-727-9099 or text a tip to 50411.
