Man wanted for girlfriend’s assault and damage to property

A Milwaukee man is now wanted by the Wauwatosa police as a suspect in the assault of a woman at the Extended Stay America hotel located at W. North Ave. on April 1st.

The man was allegedly shouting threats at his girlfriend through a door and threatened to harm her with a tire iron when hotel staff called police around noon. When police arrived, the suspect had already left the scene, after smashing his girlfriend’s car windows.

Police chased the man as he drove a stolen car towards Mayfair Road and Hwy 45. He headed north at more than 80 miles per hour before exiting towards Capitol Drive, where he lost control of his car.

The suspect was able to evade police after escaping on foot towards Currie Park.
