Young Man Tells Police He Was Carjacked at Gunpoint

21-year-old says one of his assailants was someone he went to high school with, and that he was robbed and pistol-whipped besides losing his car.

At 2:10 p.m., a 21-year-old Milwaukee man reported that he had been robbed at gunpoint of his car and possessions by two men and was pistol-whipped by one of the robbers.

Officers found him being treated by Fire Department paramedics, but he had no visible injuries.

He said he had gone to Kmart, 3201 N. Mayfair Rd., to fill out a job application, and just after he got out of his car, he saw one man get out of a blue Hyundai Sonata with a gray semi-automatic pistol in his hand.

Another man, whom he recognized as a former schoolmate, came at him from between two parked cars, he said, carrying a black pistol.

The first said, “Yeah, you know what time it is!” he told officers, and the second ordered him back into his car. He was then ordered to move over to the passenger seat, and after he crawled over, the robber with the black gun got into the driver’s seat and the other got in the back seat, he said.

He told officers the driver said loudly, “Put the heat on him!” and he felt a gun pressed to his shoulder. As they drove off with him north on Mayfair Road, he said, the man in back smacked in the side of the head with the pistol.

The robbers then told him to take off his pants and empty the pockets. He said he pulled his pants down but not off and turned over everything he had to the two – his wallet and two cell phones.

After turning east on Capitol Drive, they pulled into an alley behind VCY Bookstore. He was ordered out of his car, and the robbers drove off. He said he saw the blue Sonata waiting nearby, and it drove off after the others.

He told police that the second robber to appear had been a year behind him at Vincent High School in Milwaukee.
