Man gets three years for Lo­gan Cir­cle rob­bery

The Washington Times Daily - - Metro -

A D.C. man was sen­tenced Thurs­day to more than three years in prison af­ter plead­ing guilty to rob­bing two men who were eat­ing out­side a Lo­gan Cir­cle pizza restau­rant.

James Ed­ward Wade, 30, was sen­tenced in D.C. Su­pe­rior Court. Pros­e­cu­tors said Wade ap­proached the vic­tims around 9:20 p.m. on May 17 out­side Piz­zoli’s Pizze­ria in Lo­gan Cir­cle and was bran­dish­ing what ap­peared to be a hand­gun. The vic­tims turned over prop­erty, and Wade fled.

Po­lice posted a video of the rob­bery on YouTube and said Wade’s ar­rest fol­lowed tips from the pub­lic. Wade pleaded guilty to the crime in Septem­ber.

Wade’s at­tor­ney did not im­me­di­ately re­spond to a tele­phone mes­sage left Thurs­day.
