A convicted felon is arrested by Milwaukee Police after committing an armed robbery and later admitting to a separate attempted armed robbery. District One officers responded to an armed robbery in the 600 block of E. Lyon Street shortly after midnight on August 23. The victims, two 25-year-old men from Milwaukee, were walking when they were approached by a man who pulled out a gun and demanded their belongings. The suspect took a wallet and a phone and struggled with one of the victims and then fled on foot. Officers, using the phone’s GPS, were directed to the area of the 2500 block of W. Wells Street where the phone was later discovered. Using information from the investigation, officers conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle in the 700 block of N. 26th Street at about 11:35 a.m. and took the suspect into custody. As the suspect got out of the car, officers noticed an ID card that belonged to one of the victims fall to the ground. The suspect, a 32-year-old Milwaukee man, confessed to the armed robbery and admitted to an attempted armed robbery earlier that morning in the 200 block of E. Knapp Street. The suspect is a convicted felon and has a criminal record dating back to 1999. Milwaukee Police will present this case to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the coming days.
