Mother of Milwaukee robbery suspect calls police


November 20, 2014

MILWAUKEE A 15-year-old Milwaukee boy has been arrested on suspicion of armed robbery after his mother called police to report the crime.

Police said Wednesday they believe the boy is one of two people who robbed a 62-year-old woman and her 19-year-old daughter on Tuesday. They say one of the two suspects had a gun. It's unclear what they took.

Police say the 15-year-old's mother called police a short time after the robbery to report the boy had brought home items that she thought were stolen.

Officers arrested the boy after a brief foot chase. They say he had items taken in the robbery.

Police were seeking his alleged accomplice Wednesday.
