BROWN DEER -- Brown Deer police say two teenagers were taken into custody after an attempted carjacking in the Walmart parking lot near 60th and Brown Deer Road.
It happened around 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, May 10th.
Police say the victim was in her vehicle, stopped at a red light when she was approached by two people who attempted to enter her vehicle -- positioned on both sides of it.
The woman's doors were locked, but police say the suspects demanded that the woman exit her vehicle.
The woman was able to escape by driving away. She was not hurt, and there was no damage done to her vehicle.
The suspects were described as two black males who fled westbound on Brown Deer Road in a silver vehicle.
Police located the suspects near 76th and Brown Deer Road, and learned the silver vehicle had been reported stolen out of Milwaukee.
The suspects, a 15-year-old and 17-year-old from Milwaukee were arrested.
Lt. George King with the Brown Deer Police Department said he cannot speak to specific trends, but said cases involving teens using stolen cars in other crimes seem to be on the rise in Brown Deer -- prompting a new warning from police.
"If you see someone approach quickly on the sides -- make sure your doors are locked," King said.
Charges will be referred to the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office in this case.
