Arrest Made In Bury Your Dead Robbery/Assault
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Milwaukee police have arrested a 19-year-old man they believe was involved in the weekend armed robbery of BURY YOUR DEAD guitarist Eric Ellis, who had just played a show at The Rave.
The victim, 23, was sitting in a car about 12:30 a.m. Sunday when he was held up by five men, two with guns, according to Milwaukee police. He handed over a bag of jewelry, and the robbers fled the parking lot, near N. 24th St. and W. Wisconsin Ave.
The victim chased the robbers and caught up with them but was kicked, suffering a cut to his head.
Department spokesman Bobby Lindsey said the 19-year-old suspect was arrested Monday and remains in police custody. The case is expected to be referred to prosecutors Wednesday. Police continue to seek other suspects in the crime, Lindsey said.
In a statement released yesterday, the members of BURY YOUR DEAD denied that robbery was the motive for the attack, claiming that the Milwaukee police have classified the incident as a "gang initiation." According to the group's statement, Ellis "was a victim of a random attack by six individuals. . . Eric was held at gunpoint while the men hit him multiple times with a baseball bat and hammer."
