Student mugged on walk home from school

May 11, 2010

A Wauwatosa teenager was attacked by robbers who wanted his MP3 player Friday afternoon.

According to the Wauwatosa police report:

The 18-year-old student was walking home from Wauwatosa East High School when he noticed two boys walking a distance behind him. As he reached Washington Circle, one of the boys reached from behind and covered the 18-year-old's mouth. The other tried to take his MP3 player from his pants pocket.

When the victim struggled, the robbers pushed him to the ground and punched him in the jaw.

Fortunately, a neighbor saw the altercation and yelled at the robbers. They fled, only getting the headphones.

Two Milwaukee boys, ages 15 and 16, were arrested for robbery with use of force and sent to Milwaukee County Children's Court.
