Crime Update: Recent Armed Robberies Reported in Cudahy, St. Francis

Just received the following email alert from the South Milwaukee Police Department:

The cities of Saint Francis and Cudahy have had a total of three armed robberies over the past few weeks.  The suspect is described as a white male, 5’9″-6′, slim to medium build.  The suspect has been using a handgun during the robberies and has been covering his face with a mask and hood, which is on prior to him entering the businesses.  It is believed that the same suspect is involved in all three robberies. The target businesses so far have been restaurants with a time frame of about 5:30p.m.-8:30p.m..  No vehicle description has been obtained.  Please advised your employees of this and go over your money drop and hold-up policies with them.  No South Milwaukee business has been targeted as of this time, but the proximity of the other two cities with ours puts us at a higher risk. 

If your business is robbed, it is very important that employees call 911 as soon as it is safe and prior to making any other phone calls! Have you employees lock the door as soon as it is safe to prevent the suspect from returning if he is spooked.  Remind employees to get as good of description as they can including clothing, height/weight, vehicle and a direction of travel. 

If you see a person matching the above description in or near your business do not hesitate to call 911!  It is not uncommon for criminals to “case” or watch a business prior to entering it.  Being aware of your surroundings is one of the first steps to being safe. 

Remember, you can sign up to receive these updates from Officer Mike Hill by emailing him at mhill@ci.south-milwaukee.wi.us. And a big thanks to Officer Hill for offering this valuable service.
