South Side Armed Robbery Suspects Arrested Blocks from Crime Scene

District Two officers from the Milwaukee Police Department arrested three armed robbery suspects after they were spotted just blocks from the crime scene. Officers responded to the Payless Shoe Source store at 1001 W. Historic Mitchell Street around 10:20 a.m. on August 30 for a report of an armed robbery. An employee told officers two females and one male entered the store and began grabbing merchandise off the shelves. As the employee tried to stop the group, one of the females pepper sprayed her. The suspects fled from the store on foot but were spotted by officers walking in the 1300 block of W. Historic Mitchell Street around 11:50 a.m. and were taken into custody. The suspects are a 13-year-old male, a 16-year-old female, and a 24-year-old woman, all from Milwaukee. Officers found a can of pepper spray in the 16-year-old’s purse. MPD will present the case to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the coming days.
