D.C. police are seeking information about three teenagers who are considered persons of interest in a robbery at a hotel in Northwest Washington.

On Sunday at about 7:15 p.m., the victim's property was taken at the Hamilton Crowne Plaza Hotel, located at 1001 14th Street NW. When the victim struggled to retrieve her belongings from the robber, she was assaulted by him, police said.

Surveillance video from the hotel showed three black male teenagers who walked down a corridor and into a bathroom. A police spokesman said that officers believe that one of the teens may be the robber and that all three may have information about the incident.

One of the teens was wearing a black Adidas brand jacket with three white stripes down each sleeve, black pants, a black skull cap and gray and blue sneakers. The second teen had a dark complexion and dreadlocks and was wearing a black jacket with a white-and-blue stripe on the chest. The third teen was wearing all black clothing and black-framed glasses.

Anyone with information can call police at 202-727-9099 or send a text message to 50411.
