Citizens Help in Arrest of Strong Armed Robbery Suspect

A strong armed robbery suspect has been charged after citizens in Downtown Milwaukee helped Milwaukee Police make the arrest. District One officers responded to the 100 block of E. Kilbourn Avenue around 11:45 a.m. on September 18 and when they got to the scene, they saw two citizens holding down the suspect, 25-year-old Jake K. Klug of West Bend. The officers talked to the victim, a 22-year-old Milwaukee woman, who said she was walking when the suspect approached her, grabbed her purse, and fled on foot. The woman screamed for help and a nearby citizen was able to stop the suspect and detain him until police arrived. Officers recovered the victim’s purse and returned it to her. Klug, who has a criminal record dating back to 2007, has been charged with one count of robbery and faces up to 15 years in prison or a fine of $50,000 if convicted.
