Vehicle caught on camera: MPD needs help to track down attempted armed robbery suspect

MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee police are seeking a suspect and a vehicle wanted in connection with an attempted strong armed robbery on the city’s southwest side on Monday, August 28th.

An unknown suspect approached the victim, a 51-year-old Milwaukee man, and struck him in the neighborhood near 60th and Forest Home around 7:40 p.m. on Monday.

The victim fired a shot from his gun and the suspect fled without obtaining anything. The victim was transported to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The suspect is described as a white, possibly Hispanic man, between the ages of 20 and 25, standing 5’8”-5’10” tall, with a medium build, and shoulder-length dark brown hair.  He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt and dark pants.

The suspect fled in a vehicle that is a white or silver, four-door sedan, with black rims.  It is believed the vehicle is an early 2000s Toyota with a possible Wisconsin plate 524-KZN, however those plates do not list to any vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to call Milwaukee police at 414-935-7360.
