WASHINGTON, D.C. — A woman was robbed of her car at gunpoint by four assailants yesterday evening while she was getting groceries out of the vehicle.

Police report that one of the suspects pointed a silver handgun at her and said, “Give up the car.”

They took the car and were last seen driving east away from the scene of the crime, 15th St. and Dumbarton Rock Court. They were possibly seen earlier in the evening around the corner of Wisconsin and O Street, Northwest.

The suspects are described as three African-American men and one African-American woman, who wore hooded sweatshirts.
