MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee police have arrested the man accused of stabbing an employee at the Walgreens near 27th and National Avenue late on Sunday, February 21st.

Police say the suspect walked into the store around 10:15 p.m. and started pounding on an office door. A manager and a security guard responded and began to escort the suspect out of the store. While just outside the store, the suspect took out an unknown object and stabbed the manager, a 41-year-old Milwaukee man, before fleeing on foot.

The victim was transported to the hospital for treatment of his injuries.

Police said the suspect was arrested Monday, February 22nd at a home near 25th and Scott — shortly after police shared surveillance video of this incident with the media.

    Being stabbed would just piss me the hell off more depending on where the dude would stab me. After that, I’d be over by way of .40cal HP or The Twist Submission hold OR the Boston Crab.

    We need executive legislation now to limit the people who have access to knives and any other edged weapons. With the lack of substantial laws, any homemaker, chef, artist, hunter, and child has access to these weapons. Every office and business in the country is at risk if they have box cutters on site. Our leaders need to take action immediately and save us from these deadly weapons!!

      Fred not funny @ boxcutters. We have special safety ones you can only get when you sign them out. You are only allowed one. Takes an engineering degree to figure out how to open the dang thing. Sporks would be better lol

      Easy Fred. No one is taking your precious gun away. You can stay at home and fondle it all day if you want. But just think – if it would have been a gun they would both be dead.

    The saddest part is that Walgreens will deny any workman’s comp claim that the manager makes. They will blame him for what happened. I guarantee it.
