Three Milwaukee males, 16, 17 and 18, were arrested for two robberies last week in Whitefish Bay.
In the first robbery the two younger males, both with bandannas covering their faces, forced a woman to give them her two shopping bags as she walked in the 200 block of East Birch Avenue about 5 p.m. Aug 9. They fled in a van driven by the 18-year-old.
In the second robbery, the same two boys again covering their faces, forcibly took a purse from a woman in the 300 block of East Lake View Avenue at 6:45 p.m.
They again fled in the van but were stopped by Glendale police in the 3700 block of West Silver Spring Drive.
