A woman said that she parked her car and left it running when she went in. She didn’t see who took her car, and the officer checked the area for the vehicle but couldn’t find it.

The officer was sent to the Speedway gas station, 2110 S. Green Bay Road, for a report of people fighting outside a car. Upon arrival, the officer spoke to the woman whose car was stolen and she said that she and her boyfriend went looking for her car and got into a fight with the suspect.

She said she went there because she got a notification that her bank card was being used there. The suspect fled into the nearby Burlington Coat Factory.

The officer found the suspect, Perkins, and detained him. He reportedly told the officer “I stole a car.” The officer spoke to an employee who said that Perkins came into the bathroom, began punching a door and yelled he was going to jail. He used the bathroom and then left.

Perkins was given a $5,000 cash bond in Racine County Circuit Court on Friday. A competency hearing is set for Nov. 19 at the Racine County Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave., online court records show.
