GREEN BAY - Green Bay police are looking for a 16-year-old in connection with three recent crimes.
Officers say they are searching for Kevin Sierra-Lopez as a person of interest in three separate incidents in August.
The first incident was a stabbing at 2077 Imperial Lane on Aug. 6. Police say they were called to that address just after 10:20 a.m. A 27-year-old man had confronted a neighbor about a domestic issue between the two of them and a woman. Friends of the neighbor attacked the 27-year-old, who was stabbed several times in the torso and was hit in the head with a metal object. Police describe his injuries as severe, but not life-threatening.
The second incident happened just before 9:20 p.m. Aug. 12 at the Green Bay Yacht Club, 100 Bay Beach Road. Officers say a 54-year-old man and his 30-year-old son were leaving the yacht club when several males confronted them. The attackers told the father and son to give them their money and then attacked them. The victims fought off the would-be robbers and suffered minor injuries, but nothing was taken. Investigators say they later learned the attackers had burglarized a boat earlier in the week and had returned to burglarize another boat. When they saw the father and son, they decided to try to rob them. In this case, two people have been arrested.
The third incident happened around 9:15 p.m. Aug. 15 in the 400 block of Mather St. A man who was delivering pizzas was beaten in a robbery attempt. The robbers went through the man’s pockets looking for money, but he didn’t have any. Investigators say this upset one of the attackers, who repeatedly beat and kicked the victim in the head. He suffered severe injuries and was hospitalized, but has since been released and is recovering. Police say they are requesting criminal charges against several people in this case, one of whom was also involved in the Green Bay Yacht Club incident.
Officers say Sierra-Lopez is a person of interest in these cases and is also wanted for probation violation by the state Department of Corrections. Sierrz-Lopez is described as 5-foot-6 and 160 pounds. Police say he is known to frequent the east side of Green Bay and has what officers call “associates” in the Imperial Lane and Lime Kiln Road areas.
Sierra-Lopez has a history of violence and should be considered dangerous, police say. They ask that citizens not approach him.
