District Four Officers Arrest Suspect in Attempted Robbery

Officers from District Four of the Milwaukee Police Department arrested a suspect after he tried to rob a victim of his car. Officers were dispatched to the 9000 block of W. Silver Spring Drive at about 5:40 p.m. on November 10 for a report of a strong-armed robbery. At the scene, the victim, a 49-year-old man, told officers that as he was leaving a business and attempting to get into his vehicle a suspect approached him. The suspect demanded the keys and his vehicle while implying a weapon, which turned out to be a cell phone. Following a brief struggle, the victim was able to get away in his car. A short time later, officers on patrol in the 9400 block of W. Sheridan Avenue saw a man matching the description of the suspect and took him into custody. The suspect, an 18-year-old man from Milwaukee, confessed to the crime. MPD will present this case to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the coming days.
