Two in custody after credit union robbery in Brown Deer

GLENDALE (WITI) -- Two suspects are in custody and police are searching for a third after an armed robbery at the Credit Union Services Center in Brown Deer on Thursday, January 16th.

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.

The third suspect remains on the loose. He is described as a male, black, in his early 20s, tall with a thin build. He was wearing a black hoodie and a black puffy-style jacket.

If you have information that could help police in this case, you're urged to call the Brown Deer Police Department at 414-371-2900 and reference case #14-708.

As a precaution, schools in the area, including Cardinal Stritch University and Nicolet High School, were locked down until the incident was over.
