With the help of several citizens, Milwaukee Police officers arrested an armed robbery suspect on Milwaukee’s South Side. District Two officers responded to a business in the 3900 block of W. Greenfield Avenue for a report of an armed robbery around 7:30 p.m. on August 9. A suspect inside the business, armed with a knife, approached the clerk and demanded money. The suspect took the cash register and fled from the scene on foot. Responding officers and citizens in the nearby neighborhood saw the suspect running away and were able to catch up with him in the 3700 block of W. Branting Lane where he was arrested. The suspect is a 30-year-old Milwaukee man and is a convicted felon with a previous armed robbery conviction. MPD will present the case for charges to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the coming days.
