The Milwaukee Police Department has confirmed that the second suspect in the robberies that took place at 18th Street and Wisconsin Avenue on May 2 is in custody. The university is thankful for the continued collaboration between DPS and MPD, who immediately responded to the scene of the robberies. DPS was able to quickly apprehend one of the suspects and MPD took over the search for the remaining suspect.
Any future updates on the robberies and related criminal charges for the two suspects involved will be handled by MPD.
