Police: Men attempted traffic stop in police-style car

Two men driving a police-style car outfitted with emergency lights attempted to make a traffic stop in the District last Friday and are also suspects in an armed robbery that occurred a short time later, according to D.C. police.

Police are seeking help from the public in finding the two men.

Authorities said it appears the same car was used in both incidents. The vehicle is described as a a mid- to late-1990s dark blue Crown Victoria, possibly a police interceptor model, with tinted windows and emergency lights on the front and rear of the vehicle, according to police.

The attempted traffic stop occurred around 4 a.m. on June 24 at 42nd Street and Gault Place NW, police said. About an hour later, the suspects allegedly robbed an establishment in the 4900 block of South Dakota Avenue NE, according to police.

Anyone with information about the two men should call (202) 727-9099.
