Two charged in Brown Deer armed robbery, third in custody

BROWN DEER (WITI) -- Brown Deer police say two people have been charged, and a third has been taken into custody in connection with the armed robbery of the Credit Union Services Center on West Brown Deer Road that occurred on January 16th.

18-year-old Marcques Davis of Milwaukee, and 17-year-old Joey James-Roby of Milwaukee were picked up in Fox Point, shortly after the robbery, and now face a charge of robbery of a financial institution -- party to a crime.

The third suspect has not yet been charged.

This armed robbery led to lockdowns at area schools -- including Cardinal Stritch University and Nicolet High School.

Officials say two of the suspects entered the credit union just before 11:30 a.m.. One displayed a black handgun and demanded money from the teller. Once they got cash, they fled the scene.

Witnesses told officers the suspects fled eastbound on W. Brown Deer Rd. in a car driven by a third person. Glendale police later saw the vehicle they were looking for in Fox Point. The suspects had abandoned the vehicle -- and a foot pursuit began.

Officers from Glendale, Fox Point, Whitefish Bay, Bayside, Brown Deer and the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s K-9 unit coordinated efforts and took two suspects into custody.
