MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee police are seeking two suspects after a dog was stolen from its owners at gunpoint on Friday.
Police say it happened near 60th and Chambers around 2 p.m. The suspects pointed the gun at two juveniles and took their four-month-old dog. Police say it is a white and tan female bulldog.
Twelve-year-old Alanna Vaughn and her 10-year-old brother Izayah Savangvongsavanh say they were doing what they always do, walking their dog Coco.
As they were standing on the corner of 60th and Chambers, Alanna said a car pulled up next to her and started asking questions about the dog.
Alanna said she began feeling uncomfortable and decided not to respond. Moments later, she said the driver pointed a gun at her and snatched the dog.
Both kids say their lives have been flipped upside down since Friday afternoon, but they are determined to bring Coco back.
"I really want her back because I really wanted a dog real bad and I've been waiting for a long time," Izayah stated.
An activity like walking the dog always brought both kids so much joy, but now Alanna said it's nerve racking.
"I don't want anything to happen to me next," she stated.
The first suspect, the driver, is described by police as an 18 to 20-year-old African American man with a black firearm. The second suspect, the passenger, is described as a 16 to 20-year-old African American man with a skinny build and short-length dreadlocks. He was last seen wearing a black ski-mask, a black jacket, and black pants.
The suspects were driving a four-door, 2017 silver Infiniti Q50 with heavily tinted windows and stock wheels.
