Two teens arrested, third sought after carjacking incident on Milwaukee’s north side
MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee police arrested two teenagers who stole an elderly woman’s car at gunpoint after that car crashed on Milwaukee’s north side on Thursday, January 14th.
Officers from District 5 responded to the neighborhood near 19th and Congress around 2:20 p.m. for a report of an armed robbery. The victim, an 87-year-old Milwaukee woman, told officers several males approached her — and one of them, armed with a gun, demanded her car. That suspect along with two others got in her car and fled from the scene.
Officers responding to the scene saw the woman’s car near 20th and Atkinson. As they were about to perform a traffic stop, the car crashed into a snow bank.
Three males fled from the car on foot and officers arrested two of them, a 16-year-old Milwaukee male and a 15-year-old Milwaukee male.
MPD continues to search for the third occupant and other suspects that may have been involved in the initial armed robbery.
