Milwaukee Police District Two officers arrested a convicted felon wanted in connection with a sexual assault and an attempted sexual assault, both on the City’s South Side.
Officers responded to the 1000 block of South 19th Street around 2:40 AM on August 27 for a report of a sexual assault and a robbery. The victim, a 28-year-old Milwaukee woman, told officers a suspect had just sexually assaulted her in a nearby alley and robbed her of her purse at knife point. The victim was able to give officers a description of the car the suspect was driving and around 3:15 AM the officers located the car in the 1500 block of South 15th Street. The suspect, a 27-year-old Milwaukee man, was taken into custody. While the officers were still on scene with the suspect, a 23-year-old Milwaukee woman approached the officers and said the suspect attempted to sexually assault her a few minutes earlier and stole money from her. The suspect is a convicted felon with an arrest record dating back to 2005. MPD will present this case to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the coming days.
