Police arrest two robbery suspects, one of them just 12 years old!

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Milwaukee police say they have arrested two armed robbery suspects -- and one of them is just 12 years old.

Police say a 33-year-old man told officers he was walking in the 1300 block of W. Dakota Street just before 11:30 p.m. on Sunday night, September 14th, when he was approached by two suspects.

Police say one of the suspects, known to the victim, began assaulting the man -- stealing property for him.

Police say the second suspect stood by and watched -- before both suspects fled on food.

The victim and a family member told responding officers the home the suspects could be found in -- and they were taken into custody in the 2900 block of S. 14th Street.

The suspects are a 17-year-old Milwaukee male and a 12-year-old Milwaukee male.

Charges have been referred to the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office.
