Greenfield Police identify suspect in brass knuckles beating and attempted carjacking
The victim explained that when she began exiting her car, the car door was pulled open by a black man. This suspect did not say anything to the victim and immediately began hitting her in the face with his right fist while wearing brass knuckles. The suspect also attempted to pull the victim from her car by her leg. As the victim was being struck, she was able to retrieve pepper spray that she carried and sprayed the suspect in the face causing him to flee in his car - a dark colored sedan. While the victim was being brutalized, a womanwas attempting to open the passenger door and was yelling to the male that he should “grab the purse.”
The victim was transported to Froedtert Hospital by ambulance and treated for non-life threatening injuries.
While investigating this case, detectives learned of a retail theft that occurred in the Village of Greendale just before the incident. The description of the woman closely matched the female suspect in this case and fled in a similar vehicle.
