Milwaukee Police believe a suspect wanted in a South Side business armed robbery is responsible for a similar crime at a South Side restaurant two days later. MPD responded to an armed robbery at George Webb’s, 2028 W. Mitchell Street, around 8:40 p.m. on April 13. A male suspect went into the restaurant, showed a handgun, and demanded cash from the register. The suspect also stole a purse from an employee before he fled on foot.
The surveillance images below were captured from a nearby gas station after the George Webb’s armed robbery and depict the suspect that MPD is looking for.
Investigators believe this same suspect also committed an armed robbery at the Family Dollar at 627 W. Historic Mitchell Street on April 11. More info and video from that crime can be found here.
