One of three suspects is in custody after an attempted armed robbery that occurred Thursday at Woodman’s in Menomonee Falls.

At roughly 9 a.m. the Menomonee Falls Police Department responded to a report of an armed robbery at the employee-owned grocery store. Two suspects fled in a small red vehicle, but store employees confronted a third.

When confronted, the man presented an object believed to be a knife or other weapon in a threatening manner while fleeing the scene with merchandise. Police located the man shortly thereafter and was taken into custody after a brief foot chase.

The bottles of liquor the man attempted to steal were recovered, and officers also found drug paraphernalia in his possession. The man was taken to jail, and is currently awaiting charges for robbery/use of threat of force and possession of drug paraphernalia in the Waukesha County Circuit Court.

The incident is still under investigation to identify the two other subjects involved in the crime.

What was fail to be mention in the article was that the suspect( black) tried to break in into my neighbors house on Fond du Lac Ave but the door was lock( thank-god she 76) and then ran under a big evergreen trying to hide but police found him and were yelling at him with guns drawn to get to the ground.He was handcuff taking to a police car and then like 20 min.'s later a ambulance came and the suspect was put on a stretcher look like he had a neck brace on . Nuitari is right Woodman's is the new Wal-mart.

Why yes, Lil Bit (Naive), you see Woodman's, being placed right in between the demilitarized zone of Menomonee Falls and Milwaukee has intercepted all of Wal-mart (Germantown and former Northridge Ruins locations) business. Here has been my observations, not be considered racist but comparisons between to stores: (1) Never before I have seen all of a parking lot's handicap spots filled - with illegitimate cars. I've noticed people walk just fine out of their pimped rides. They also like to take up space in the fire lanes. (2) Like my Wal-mart experiences, a certain demographic likes to stock up on junk food (usually spilling into a second cart) and break out their Quest card. I can't help to snicker when I see mountains of frozen chicken and jugs of grape soda. (3) While strolling though the aisles I noticed that razor blades have to be bought using a voucher system. Never saw that before. Must be a big black market for them. Just what I've noticed. Check the crime blotter for stolen gas, Tide, razor blades, 5-hour Energy, and alcohol if you want more. I'm still waiting for Woodman's to install a hot chicken booth like at Wal-mart. Then my argument will be solidified.

When we start busting honkies over dumb crime like this, I will bash them as well.

I'm sorry but racial debates are just ignorant. It's a class debate we should be having in this country. Race has no merit in distinguishing human beings biologically. We live in a class-based society whether we admit it or not. Race is an artificial division in our society, and to continually harp on race simply ignores the larger debate we should be having in this country. A society that continues to debate on artificial dividing lines remains separated, alienated, automated, and easily controlled. Let's do ourselves a favor and heighten the level of discussion we have on these comment threads.

Sorry, I tend to involve a certain race, when it is indeed an entire economic class I would like to attack. There are mooching whities too.
