Post office near 35th & Vliet robbed

MILWAUKEE — A 39-year-old Milwaukee woman attempted to rob a U.S. Post Office near 35th and Vliet St. on Thursday morning, September 10th. But she failed.

Police say the attempted armed robbery happened around 9 a.m. The woman apparently approached the counter with a tire iron and demanded money from a postal worker.

Employees however, apprehended the suspect until police arrived and took her into custody.

Milwaukee police are expected to present charges to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the coming days.

    Instead of the racist and ignorant comments people insert here I will say this, obviously this woman has had a total and catastrophic break with reality. #1 a tire iron!? #2 a post office!?

    Obviously our mental health and drug abuse system has utterly FAILED the citizens of Milwaukee.

    I worked in that office 30 years and I’ve seen a lot and I mean a lot of stuff. There’s nothing that surprises me from that area.

    I kno this woman personally and to b honest, she is a nice person. She jus came home from a 14yr prison bid earlier this year and was working a 12hr shift job, living in cudahy. I take care of her mother and I saw no problems wit her. But, she did call and say that she was scared out here and I completely understand…once you have been accustomed to a certain lifestyle(hers being prison), it’s all u kno. So, she did wat she thought wud land her back to Wat she is used to. People are quick to judge without knowing the whole story and that’s a lot of people’s problem today. MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS AND KEEP YOUR COMMENTS TO YOURSELF BCUZ IT CUBAN B YOU!
