Officers responded around 6:30 p.m. on Monday to a report of an attempted armed robbery in the 300 block of Tulip Ave., police spokesperson Cathy Plevy said in an emailed community advisory. As the victim walked down Tulip Ave., four unknown suspects got out of a light-colored sedan and approached her. The suspects demanded property from the victim at gunpoint.

The suspects abandoned their efforts and got back into their vehicle and fled the area heading towards the District.
The suspects have not been identified, Plevy said.
