MPD Arrests Two Teenagers in Armed Robbery of Elderly Victim

Milwaukee Police arrested two teenagers who stole an elderly woman’s car at gunpoint after that car crashed on Milwaukee’s North Side. District Five officers responded to the 1900 block of W. Congress Street around 2:20 p.m. on January 14 for a report of an armed robbery. The victim, an 87-year-old Milwaukee woman, told officers that several males approached her and that one of them, armed with a gun, demanded her car. That suspect along with two others got in her car, a 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt, and fled from the scene. Officers responding to the scene saw the Cobalt near N. 20th Street and W. Atkinson Avenue and as they were about to perform a traffic stop, the car crashed into a snowbank. Three males fled from the car on foot and officers arrested two of them, a 16-year-old Milwaukee male and a 15-year-old Milwaukee male. MPD continues to search for the third occupant and other suspects that may have been involved in the initial armed robbery. MPD will present the case against the two suspects to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the coming days.
