MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee police arrested two suspects who fled from officers in a car stolen in an armed robbery late on Tuesday, August 16th. But they’re searching for a third suspect.

Around 11:00 p.m. on Wednesday, that vehicle was spotted by officers near 27th and Atkinson. The officers attempted to make a traffic stop, but the driver sped off from the scene. A pursuit was initiated and a few minutes later in the neighborhood just south of 32nd and Villard, the Accord drove over the curb into a vacant field and became disabled.
Three people from inside the car fled and two were arrested. Again, Milwaukee police are searching for that third suspect.
