Broken bank window leads to man’s arrest

A Milwaukee man was arrested by police after he broke a window at Port Washington State bank’s Saukville branch in a fit of anger.

According to Saukville police, officers were called to the bank shortly after 9 a.m. Friday, Sept. 22, for a report that a 38 year-old Milwaukee man had broken a window.

Police were told the man was not a customer of the bank but had come to cash a check. Due to bank policies, the check could not be cashed until Monday.

Bank staff said the man left the bank swearing and as he passed one of the office windows on his way out, he punched it, shattering the glass.  

Police went to the man’s address in Milwaukee where he told police he left after punching the glass because his daughter was with him and she was frightened.

Charges of disorderly conduct and criminal damage to property are being requested.
