Officers from District Four of the Milwaukee Police Department made a quick arrest of a suspect wanted in an armed robbery at the KFC/Taco Bell in the 7200 block of N. Teutonia Avenue. Around 7:45 p.m. on April 7, a suspect entered the restaurant and pointed a gun at the employees. One of the employees immediately called 911 and gave police important details about the description of the suspect. The suspect demanded money from the register and jumped the counter. The suspect then chased the employees and stole personal belongings from an office before he fled from the scene.
MPD squads arrived on the scene quickly and began searching for the suspect. The 26-year-old Milwaukee man was found after a short foot chase and was arrested. The suspect’s gun was recovered as well as the items belonging to the victims.
This teamwork and communication by District Four officers led to the quick arrest of an armed and dangerous criminal. Great job by all involved!
