Milwaukee,  WI - On Tuesday, Fermin Ramirez-Chavez, 25, was sentenced to 4-years in prison and 4-years probation after pleading guilty to two felony counts of attempted armed robbery with use of force. Chavez was arrested last year in August when a tip led police to a suspicious man at a park where a victim had been robbed.
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has placed a hold on Chavez. Once Chavez completes his sentence, he will be deported to his native country. 
On August 9, Chavez robbed a female jogger at Warnimont Park in Cudahy and on August 24, robbed another woman at the Bay View Park in St. Francis, both robberies occurred in Milwaukee County parks. He told police that he had lost his job and needed money. So, he began to target female joggers by knocking them down while they were running and then stole cellphones, iPods and other items from them.
