Three Teens Charged in Last Week's Robbery

After forcibly stealing items from two women in broad daylight last week, the three Milwaukee males have been charged in Milwaukee County Circuit Court.

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.
