Two of three suspects in custody after robbery, car theft on Milwaukee’s northwest side
MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee police arrested two suspects and are searching for a third following an armed robbery on the city’s northwest side on Thursday, March 31st.
Officers responded to the neighborhood near 60th and Leon Terrace around 8 p.m. Thursday — where they met with the victim, a 34-year-old Milwaukee woman. She told officers a female suspect stole car keys from her hand and fled in the victim’s car.
Officers located the car a short time later and began to pursue it until the vehicle crashed into a pole near Teutonia and Wright Street.
Three individuals fled from the car and two, a 15-year-old girl and a 17-year-old boy, were taken into custody. The female suspect was arrested and charged for an armed robbery in December 2015. The male suspect was out on bail for the same armed robbery as the female suspect. A third suspect remains on the run.
MPD will present this case to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the coming days.
