Thug responsible for assault at George Webb now in custody
Statement from Alderman Bob Donovan - July 25, 2018
I have learned from sources that the man caught on surveillance video attacking a worker inside the George Webb restaurant at S. 21st and W. Mitchell St. in late June has been arrested by Milwaukee Police.
The video – which showed an adult male go behind the counter and punch a female manager/waitress in the face – has shocked viewers with the sheer brutality of the attack. The video also shows a restaurant co-worker who has a concealed carry permit pull out a firearm to convince the thug to head toward the door.
Sources tell me the man was arrested in District Three while engaged in a drug transaction. No surprise there.
I want to thank the detectives and officers who worked hard to apprehend the suspect. Having him in custody makes us all feel a bit safer – at least for now.
Now the real question is what will happen to him when he goes to court. I have a feeling quite a few people will be monitoring his case closely.
I know I certainly will be.
