SOUTH MILWAUKEE — South Milwaukee police are asking for your help to locate Jorge Marquez of Milwaukee, a person of interest who may be tied to the attempted theft of a motorcycle, a police pursuit and then a crash.

Officials say on Wednesday morning, Sept. 4, South Milwaukee police received a call from a resident on Sycamore Avenue that indicated someone was trying to steal her motorcycle. When confronted by the owner, two suspects fled the area in a silver vehicle. An officer attempted to stop the vehicle, but it fled at a high rate of speed. After a few blocks, the pursuit was terminated.

A short time later, a passing motorist alerted officers of a crash at the intersection of Pennsylvania and Rawson. Witnesses reported two persons fled on foot in different directions.
