Disabled veteran robbed at gunpoint in his West Allis home, two people in custody
WEST ALLIS (CBS 58) -- A West Allis man went over to his neighbor's house to ask for help after a suspect broke into his home, pulled out a gun and demanded money.
It happened at 2:48 p.m. Sunday afternoon on S. 60th Street in West Allis.
"He had a bloody face. I asked him what happened and he said he got bum rushed in his front door," said Dylon Bowen, neighbor.
That's when Bowen called 911.
"They took his phone and he wanted me to call the cops for him," Bowen said.
Neighbor say the suspect got away with the victim's cellphone and some cash.
But police soon located the 40-year-old Milwaukee man and his accomplice, at 39-year-old woman. Both were taken into custody but have not yet been charged.
"It’s horrible, he don’t bother nobody. He stays by himself, he’s disabled," said Steven Day, neighbor.
His neighbors say he uses a walker to get around and when they last checked up on him, he was okay.
"Bring them to justice, it’s a pretty messed up crime. Even if they only got a few dollars, it’s the act itself that is sickening," Bowen said.
West Allis Police said the incident is still under investigation and they are not looking for any other suspects at this time.
