Three Milwaukee teenagers have been charged for their alleged involvement with two robberies in Whitefish Bay on Aug. 9.
In the first robbery, a 29-year-old woman's grocery bags were forcibly taken from her while she was walking on Birch Avenue near Shoreland Avenue at about 5 p.m. The two male suspects wore bandanas over their mouth, and were driven away by a third suspect.
Nearly two hours later, the same suspects snatched a purse from a 66-year-old woman on Lake View Avenue between Consaul Place and Santa Monica Boulevard.
According to police:
- Leon Prince, 18, of Milwaukee, was charged with two counts of robbery and one count of fleeing and eluding police.
- Marcus Jackson, 17, of Milwaukee, was charged with one count of robbery.
- The 16-year-old boy was charged with two counts of robbery and one count of operating a vehicle without the owner's consent (passenger). Patch is not naming the suspect because he is a minor.
