Police: Search for two suspects after attempted carjacking in Brown Deer
BROWN DEER — Brown Deer police are looking for two suspects who attempted to carjack a man on N. 51st St. on Thursday afternoon, February 18th.
The victim, a 41-year-old Waukesha man, was parking his vehicle at a business near Village Park when he was approached by two suspects. Both had silver handguns.
Officials say one of the suspects struck the victim in the forehead with his gun — and then demanded and took the victim’s money, cell phone and car keys. One suspect then tried to steal the vehicle but was unable to get the vehicle running — and left it in the parking lot.
The two suspects then ran and left the scene in the silver vehicle they arrived in — driving towards Brown Deer Rd.
Police say the suspects are described as follows:
- Suspect #1: Male, black, late teens, 5’7″ tall, with a lot of hair (struck victim)
- Suspect #2: Female, white, big curly hair, red paisley dress, boots
- Suspect vehicle: Small silver possible two-door vehicle possibly similar to a Honda Civic
The North Shore Fire Department responded to the scene — and provided medical assistance to the victim.
Brown Deer police encourage anyone with information about this crime to call 414-371-2900 — and reference case #16-1638.
