MADISON, Wis. - A robbery on Madison's north side Friday afternoon resulted in an elementary school being put into a brief lockdown, police said.
Police were called to the 900 block of Blaine Drive at 1:22 p.m. on a report of a home invasion, Madison police said in a news release. Detectives found that three people entered the 15-year-old victim's home, after which one pointed a fake gun at her and stole her cellphone and money.
The trio fled the home, and two were later arrested outside Mendota Elementary, the release said. A third suspect is still at large. The school was placed on a brief lockdown during the incident.
The first robber, a 17-year-old Madison man, is tentatively charged with bail jumping and resisting. The second robber, a 15-year-old Madison man, is charged with armed robbery and possession of THC, police said.
Police continue to investigate the incident, which they believe was targeted, the release said.
