Three people have been arrested for the theft of a multi-million dollar violin, but it’s still missing.

The 300-year-old Stradivarius was stolen after a concert last week, in Milwaukee, WI.

Violinist Frank Almond, who teaches at northwestern, was attacked with a stun gun.  Charges are pending against two men and a woman.

Police hope the suspects will admit where it’s hidden, because they can’t get away with selling or pawning such a valuable instrument.

Police are also asking for leads from the public. There’s a $100,000 reward for the tip that brings it back.

The violin has been appraised at $5 million.
