If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 2 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.

From Metro Transit Police:

“ARREST: Dominick Simons, 25, of Washington, DC, on charges of armed robbery & kidnapping.”

I called a metro spokesperson for some details and they explain around 3pm a victim was forced from Bethesda to Friendship Height and robbed. Later a call with a similar description came from Van Ness where Metro Transit Police was able to make an arrest.
