From the South Milwaukee Police Department …
On 09/04/2019 at about 11:09am, the SMPD received a call from a resident in the 800blk of Sycamore that a subject was trying to steal her motorcycle. Upon being confronted by the owner, the two suspects fled the area in a silver vehicle. An officer attempted to stop the vehicle at which time it fled at a high rate of speed. After a few blocks, a supervisor terminated the pursuit. Shortly thereafter, officers were alerted by a passing motorist of a crash at the intersection of Pennsylvania/Rawson.
Upon arrival to the area, witnesses alerted officers that two subjects fled in different directions on foot from the suspect vehicle. A K-9 unit from the St. Francis PD was able to locate one of the suspects nearby in a wooded area. The arrested subject is a 25yr old Milwaukee resident. The SMPD was also assisted by the Greenfield PD with a drone, a Milwaukee County Sheriff K-9, and the Oak Creek and Cudahy Police Departments.
A citizen involved in the crash was transported to the hospital with minor injuries.
A known suspect who remains at large was described as a younger, male Hispanic, wearing shorts, no shirt, and barefoot. Persons who may have witnessed the accident are encouraged to call the SMPD at 768-8060.
