MPD Seeking Suspects in Armed Robbery
Milwaukee Police are asking the public to help identify and locate multiple suspects who are accused of robbing a victim at gunpoint on Milwaukee’s Northwest Side on January 21.
Officers responded to the 2900 block of West Villard Avenue around 5:10 AM on Thursday for a report of an armed robbery. The victim, a 47-year-old Milwaukee man, told officers that he was walking down the street when a 2006 white Subaru Tribeca approached him and three suspects got out of the car.
Two of the suspects were armed with guns and the suspects demanded the victim’s belongings. The victim complied and the suspects then fled in the car southbound on North Teutonia Avenue.
Surveillance video shows the Tribeca in a nearby gas station just before the incident occurred along with a red Dodge Avenger that may have been a part of the crime as well. Surveillance video inside the gas station shows one of the suspects who was the driver of the Subaru. He is described as a black male, in his late teens to early 20’s, with a medium complexion. He was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, a black knit cap, tan jeans, and tan boots.
The first suspect in the armed robbery is described as a black male, in his late teens to his early 20’s, 5’5”-5’8” tall, with a medium build and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt. The second suspect is described as a black male, in his late teens to early 20’s, with a medium build, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and armed with a short barreled shotgun. The third suspect is described as a black male, in his late teens to early 20’s, 5’5”-5’8” tall, with a medium build, wearing dark clothing and armed with a semiautomatic pistol.
