Posted Tuesday, January 7, 2014 --- 6:16 p.m.

A 22-year-old Madison man contacted Madison police days after an alleged mugging, according to a release. The Madison Police Department is now urging residents to report crimes as soon as they happen.

The 22-year-old reported being mugged around 1 a.m. on New Year’s Day a few days later. He had been walking home from a New Year’s party and was robbed in an alley near Monroe Street.

He was between Regent Street and Oakland Avenue when he was mugged by two men who approached him from behind, according to the release.

One of the robbers then punched the man and the two robbers fled with his money.

The 22-year-old told police he did not know what to do after the attack so he ran to his apartment, calmed down and went to bed, police said.

The two robbers are described as black men in their late 20s. One is described as being 6 feet 1 inches tall and was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt. The second robber is described as being 5 feet 10 inches tall and wearing dark jeans and a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt.

The Madison Police Department urges residents to call 911 immediately following a crime because the faster officers can get to scene, the better likelihood there is that a suspect or suspects might be apprehended.
