April 3, 2019

MILWAUKEE Police say two people have been taken into custody in connection with the beating and stabbing of a parking checker in Milwaukee.

It happened about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday on the city's northwest side as the parking enforcement officer was issuing a citation. Authorities say the two suspects confronted the man and began physically assaulting him. One of the suspects stabbed him.

Police say the checker was able to get away, return to his vehicle and drive to a police station where he was treated and transported to a hospital.

Department of Public Works Commissioner Jeff Polenske tells the Journal Sentinel that the two men detained are "persons of interest" in the attack.

Officials say he's in stable condition.
