The Marquette University Police Department investigated a robbery that took place last night, which ultimately led to the arrests of two suspects by a suburban Milwaukee law enforcement agency several miles away from campus. One subject had previously been arrested by MUPD and was being sought by MUPD for other crimes in the campus area.
“We are really proud of our officers and officers from other local departments who helped track down these suspects, which sends a clear message that we will do everything possible to keep our campus safe and that criminal activity has no place on our campus,” said Paul Mascari, Chief of Police for MUPD. Mascari emphasized the strong partnerships MUPD has with neighboring police agencies, including the Milwaukee Police Department who assisted last night. “Every day, our officers work diligently to protect our students and our campus community and we access the latest technology and intelligence to communicate with partners.”
After a student was robbed in the 700 Block of N. 22nd Street at 11:35 p.m. on March 1, MUPD sent a text alert to campus followed by an email alert. The student was not physically injured. MUPD identified the items taken in the robbery, which led to the arrests.
