Milwaukee, WI - On Saturday, three armed suspects break into a home while people were inside. A female and her son were in the house when the suspects broke in. The son ran upstairs with the mother, but the suspects didn't go to the second floor and then fled taking a laptop. The location where the forced entry occured was near the 6th Milwaukee Police District Station.
Aleks Sayavong, posted on her Facebook account that three armed suspects broke into her home while she and her son were inside. Sayavong says, "My family lives on the south side near St. Luke’s Hospital and Leon’s. This past weekend on Saturday night at approximately 10 at night, three armed suspects entered our property and kicked down our living room door. My son was laying on the couch when he heard the first sign of a break in and quickly ran upstairs to my bedroom where it was just me and my dog. The two of us were the only ones home but there are four of us that live here so they must have been watching my home to know that we were alone. We had only been there for an hour after they broke in and may have been waiting for our neighbors in the alley to go back in their homes. All of our lights were on and there were clearly people inside but these men did not hesitate to still come in. They fled and my son spotted the car and identified it as a red four door sedan Cadillac."
