Milwaukee, WI – On Wednesday, Oscar Brenes, the owner of El Patron Auto Repair confirmed that a 34-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the June 16 carjacking of his vehicle, a 2014 Toyota Camry. The driver was taken into custody after crashing and totaling the stolen Toyota Camry in the Riverwest area.
Brenes says two other suspects who he identified as Puerto Ricans assaulted him while he was parking his vehicle by his residence. The two suspects beat Brenes, took his wallet, a cellphone and then carjacked the vehicle.
Brenes told Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) that he is warning others to be aware of their surroundings when parking their vehicles to avoid becoming another victim.
A 30-year-old male victim who was struck by the 34-year-old driver of a stolen Camry contacted HNNUSA and says, that his 2011 Suburban was struck by the driver of the stolen Camry. The 30-year-old man survived the accident and says that the Camry driver was driving in excessive speed when it struck his Suburban. The Camry driver was “driving with disregard to human life” and many other incidents have occurred where drivers speed and don’t stop at the red lights, according to the Suburban driver. The surviving victim also drives a motorcycle and emphasized that he doesn’t feel safe driving around Milwaukee due to a lack of law enforcement of traffic incidents that endanger lives.
The Suburban victim stated, ” I literally saw a guy (while driving my motorcycle) blow thru a red light right in front of a cop car and they didn’t do anything. If I would have gone when my light turned green I’d be dead.”
