Six houses burglarized Monday near old Walter Reed Campus in NW Washington

Six houses were burglarized Monday in the Northwest Washington neighborhood near the campus of the old Walter Reed Army medical center.

The burglaries all occurred in the daytime, within eight or nine blocks of each other. Two occurred on the same block, the 800 block of Butternut Street NW.

Others occurred on Whittier Place, 7th Place, and Aspen and Cedar Streets.

Police were told that five people fled from the scene of the 7th Place burglary, which occurred in the 6600 block.

All were described as about 20 years old, and some had what appeared to be lace-up boots. Three wore black jackets, and one wore black gloves and a white shirt with a design on the front resembling a face. Another wore a black and white shirt with a floral design.

In addition to being near Walter Reed, several of the houses are also in the Takoma area of the District.

Police said Tuesday that similarities existed among the burglaries but that it was not yet possible to link them.

Details of the burglaries were not available immediately. In the Whittier Place incident, police said entry was apparently made through a basement door.
