Police Reports: Girls Brawl in Mayfair Mall
Also, a brief roundup of incidents including thefts, a battery and another auto theft from a Tosa resident.
At 5:45 p.m., two 16-year-old Milwaukee girls were arrested for disorderly conduct after they got into a brawl at Mayfair Mall. Mall security got a report of a loud disturbance and found the two girls wrestling on the floor in front of Viktor Viktoria, screaming profanities and tearing at each other’s hair. They both resisted mall officers and police. One of the girls was also ticketed for trespassing, as she was already banned from the mall for retail theft, and she had an outstanding Brown Deer warrant, also for retail theft.
At 7:11 a.m., a 51-year-old Wauwatosa man was arrested for battery after he punched a female employee of the Pick ‘n Save store at 6950 W. State St. for no reason. The woman said she was setting up the deli case and turned to find the man, unknown to her, standing behind her. She said he suddenly punched her in the mouth without a word. An older man quickly arrived to apologize, saying that her assailant was his son and was a schizophrenic. Police arrested him on the criminal charge rather than a mental health detention because he had only the day before been released from mental detention, on condition that he resume taking his medication, after a similar incident involving a woman in his apartment building.
A Wisconsin Rapids man reported that his bicycle had been stolen, in pieces, over Friday and Saturday from a rack outside Macy’s at Mayfair Mall. He had locked the frame to the rack Friday and returned for it at 6 p.m. to find the front wheel missing. He came back at 6 p.m. Saturday to get the bike and found the rest of it gone as well.
Numerous residents of Normandy Village apartments, 2570 N. 124th St., reported that their basement storage lockers had been broken into and various property stolen. The apartment complex provides chicken wire storage enclosures.
At 2:20 p.m., a 22-year-old Oconomowoc man was arrested for retail theft after police chased him down in the parking lot outside Target, 3900 N. 124th St. Store security called police after seeing him cutting open video game accessory packages with a knife and sticking the items in a backpack. Because the suspect was armed, store officers wanted to avoid contact. The man claimed he was taking the items for his own use but also admitted he has been addicted to Oxycodone for five years.
A resident of the 2500 block of North 67th Street reported that overnight someone stole his car, a 2001 Toyota Rav4, from his driveway. He said that he believed he had locked the car but wasn’t entirely sure. He accounted for two of three keys to the vehicle and said the third might have been inside the center console.
