On 2/10/2020 at 2:05 p.m. Milwaukee Police observed a vehicle, taken in a carjacking earlier today, on the 3600 block of W Marion Street. As officers attempted to stop the vehicle, the driver of the stolen vehicle fled. The pursuit ended after one minute when the stolen vehicle struck a City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works vehicle on the 3800 block of W. Hampton Avenue. The DPW vehicle was occupied by an on-duty city employee. The city employee was transported to a local hospital for evaluation and treatment. No one else was injured during this incident. Two adult male suspects from the stolen vehicle were taken into custody. The case will be presented to the District Attorney’s office for charges later this week.
At approximately 6:27 p.m., a Milwaukee Police marked squad conducted a traffic stop of a 2019 Nissan Ultima for speeding on the 700 Block of N 25th St. Officers observed suspected controlled substances in plain view inside the vehicle. When the occupants were asked to exit the vehicle the front passenger jumped in the front seat and attempted to drive away with one of the officers partially inside the vehicle. The vehicle proceeded approximately 70 feet before crashing into a tree. The officer was conveyed to a local hospital and was later released suffering from neck pain. A second officer injured his hand during the incident and was later treated and released. A stolen handgun was recovered from inside the vehicle along with suspected controlled substances. Two occupants from the vehicle were arrested. The passenger that initially drove away was conveyed to the hospital for observation and was released.
