Milwaukee Police arrested a 47-year-old Milwaukee man for domestic violence battery the evening of August 23. The suspect was booked at District 5 shortly after 8 p.m. and secured in a cell. During a regular check of the cells the suspect was found attempting suicide by hanging himself with his pants. Officers quickly freed the man, removed him from the cell, and performed life-saving measures. The Milwaukee Fire Department conveyed the suspect to the hospital where he remains in custody and continues to undergo treatment. He is currently listed in critical but stable condition. The Milwaukee Police Department has requested the Wisconsin Department of Justice to investigate the in-custody suicide attempt. That investigation is ongoing.
