BROWN DEER -- A 16-year-old boy was charged on Wednesday, December 6th in connection with a carjacking that happened at the ALDI grocery store in Brown Deer. The teen faces multiple charges including:
- Strong Arm Robbery
- Operating a Motor Vehicle without Owner’s Consent
Brown Deer police say the crime happened shortly after 5:00 p.m. on Friday, December 1st. A 60-year-old Brown Deer woman was seated in her vehicle when the teenager opened her door and attempted to remove her from her car.
