Two charged in attack on Parking Enforcement Officer
Statement of Alderman Cavalier Johnson April 8, 2019
On Friday, April 5 the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office criminally charged two men in connection with the vicious attack of a Department of Public Works Parking Enforcement Officer early last Tuesday (April 2) in the 2nd District near N. 67th St. and W. Villard Ave.
Tony Bornes Jr. was charged with First Degree Reckless Injury, use of a Dangerous Weapon and Issac Ali was charged with Obstructing an Officer. The men were taken into custody by Milwaukee Police after an investigation into the attack, which left the Parking Enforcement Officer with stab wounds and other injuries.
I would like to publicly thank the Milwaukee Police Department for the quick and successful investigation that resulted in the arrests of the suspects. I’m told the victim was hospitalized after the attack and is recovering from his injuries.
The Parking Enforcement Officer is one of thousands of city workers who work in the field – sometimes in cold, snow, wind and rain – every day to make sure the City of Milwaukee functions as it should. They provide valuable services and add value to our great city.
Our valued city workers deserve courtesy and respect and any attack, assault or violence against any of them in any form will not be tolerated.
