MILWAUKEE — The man who stabbed his father and carjacked a vehicle with a child inside back in 2015, has learned his fate. On Wednesday, July 26th a judge sentenced 34-year-old Jumal Lipscomb to 15 years in prison.

Lipscomb pleaded guilty in April to robbery and misdemeanor battery.

According to the criminal complaint, Lipscomb stabbed his father with a screwdriver before he carjacked a woman. Her three-year-old daughter was still in the vehicle — which prompted an Amber Alert.

Eventually, Lipscomb was arrested at a Jefferson County hotel.
