SHOREWOOD — The Shorewood Police Department is seeking suspects involved in an armed robbery on Tuesday, saying they may have been involved in another incident earlier in the day.

Police say the armed robbery occurred around 10:10 p.m. on Tuesday. A victim was walking in an ally between Olive St. and Olsen Ave. when a vehicle with four men inside pulled up.

One man got out of the vehicle, pointed a gun at the victim, and demanded property. According to police, the victim also stated they had been punched and "pistol-whipped" by the suspect.

The victim sustained minor injuries and was treated by the North Shore Fire Department.

The suspect who had the gun was described as a male in his late teens, wearing a Halloween style mask. The other people in the vehicle were also described as males.

Police say the vehicle was a small red car, which may be related to a similar incident in Wauwatosa, which took place earlier on Tuesday.

If you have any information on this incident, the vehicle, or the suspects involved, please contact the Shorewood Police Department at 414-847-2610.
