Four teenage males are in custody after Milwaukee Police arrest them for an armed robbery of a teenage victim. Police were called to the 2500 block of W. Orchard Street at approximately 1:30 pm on February 1 for a report of an armed robbery. Upon their arrival, the victim, a 13 year-old male from Milwaukee, told police that a group of four suspects came up to him, pointed a gun at him, was struck with an unknown object and had his cell phone stolen from him. The victim was treated at a local hospital for non life-threatening injuries.
At around 3:40 pm, District 2 officers were called to the area S. 18th Street and W. Grant Street for an entry complaint. It was there that they identified and arrested four males who matched the description from the earlier armed robbery. Those arrested include a 13 year-old, a 14 year-old, and two 16 year-olds. The case will be referred to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the coming days.
